The Me, Me, Me Epidemic: A Step-By-Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World

By Amy Mc Cready
Cure your kids of the entitlement epidemic so they develop happier, more productive attitudes that will carry them into a successful adulthood.

Whenever Amy McCready mentions the "entitlement epidemic" to a group of parents, she is inevitably met with eye rolls, nodding heads, and loaded comments about affected children. It seems everywhere one looks, there are preschoolers who only behave in the grocery store for a treat, narcissistic teenagers posting selfies across all forms of social media, and adult children living off their parents.

Parenting expert McCready reveals in this book that the solution is to help kids develop healthy attitudes in life. By setting up limits with consequences and training them in responsible behavior and decision making, parents can rid their homes of the entitlement epidemic and raise confident, resilient, and successful children. Whether parents are starting from scratch with a young toddler or navigating the teen years, they will find in this book proven strategies to effectively quell entitled attitudes in their children.

"If there s one thing parents need to teach their kids well beyond getting into college or finding a job it s how to be humble, contributing citizens of the world. If you re a weary parent trying to do just that, you ll find encouragement and practical know-how in the clear and enjoyable pages of this book. Daniel H. Pink, "New York Times"-bestselling author of" Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us" Do you cave in to your kids' demands even when you know it's a bad idea? Do you rescue your kids when they forget things? Do you find yourself over-contributing to your child's school project so he can meet the deadline? Most parents do these things because they can't figure out what else to do in the heat of the moment. Amy McCready shows parents why this kind of parenting raises kids who don't learn from experience, don't take responsibility, and are no fun to live with! She describes exactly what parents can do and say to set appropriate limits and help kids develop resilience. Dr. Laura Markham, author of "Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids" Every time Amy McCready has been a guest on "Today" I have found myself agreeing with absolutely everything she says. She's a no-nonsense, commonsense communicator, and "The Me, Me, Me Epidemic" offers parents great wisdom and practical advice. Kathie Lee Gifford "The Me, Me, Me Epidemic" is probably "the "most important parenting book of the decade. Ms. McCready brilliantly helps us turn from unhealthy parenting to great parenting in a simple, fun and workable manner. Meg Meeker, M.D., bestselling author of "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters" and cohost of James Dobson's Family Talk radio show Amy McCready never fails to share the strategies parents need to empower their kids, empower themselves, and know that they are giving their children the very best start in a complicated world. "The Me, Me, Me Epidemic "is a must-read for every parent who wants to raise great kids without raising their voice. Michele Borba, Ed.D., educational psychologist and author of "The Big Book of Parenting Solutions" This book immediately motivated me to stop doing things for my children that they can do for themselves.
