Try three ways to avoid the ‘gimme’ trap
Is your child’s room filled with everything she could ever want? If so, you may have a problem. Kids whose every desire is met may eventually feel entitled. To prevent your child from falling into the “gimme” trap: 1. Show her the value of effort. 2. Set high expectations. 3. Insist that she do chores around the house and take responsibility for her schoolwork. You’ll be teaching her to thrive and succeed.
