Forum: Raising Responsible Kids and Avoiding the Entitlement Trap

Our absolute last session of WCF IX was a breakout session. There were incredible topics to choose from, ranging from homeschooling, sexual exploitation, and parenting.

Authors/speakers Richard and Linda Eyre taught the parenting session. These two are such a cohesive couple who shared so much advice that this summary couldn’t even begin to cover it all.

Prioritize your kids during the time they are in the home, the Eyres counseled. They encouraged parents to give their kids ownership of certain things because that is the antidote to entitlement. Another piece of advice was to always make family traditions, and make them official. Ultimately, they shared that “parenting is the hardest and most joyous thing you will ever do.”
