Number-one New York Times - bestselling authors Richard and Linda Eyre have spent the last twenty-five years helping parents nurture strong, healthy families. Now they've synthesized their vast experience into an essential blueprint for instilling children with a sense of ownership, responsibility, and self-sufficiency.

At the heart of their plan is a Family Economy, complete with a family bank, checkbooks for the kids, and a system of initiative-building responsibilities that teaches children to earn money for the things they want. The motivation carries over to ownership of their own decisions, goals, and grades in school. The Eyres' guiding principles set a pattern for helping kids to proactively pursue their potential and internalize values that will stay with them forever.

With The Entitlement Trap in hand, parents can:

  • Teach children how to work for what they want
  • Spur enthusiasm about responsibility in unmotivated children
  • Cultivate values of discipline, integrity, and self-reliance in their families
  • Foster smart, economically savvy children

Anecdotal, time-tested, and gently humorous, The Entitlement Trap has been called the thinking parent's answer to the Tiger Mother. It challenges some of the sacred cows of parenting and replaces them with solid principles and practices.

    " I really enjoy all of the Eyre's books, but they all seem to read the same with the same information. Most of the examples they used in the book were from other of their books that I've read. I wanted new examples and ideas from them. I totally agree with them that the current generation of kids seem to be more entitled than ever before. I think even my generation feels that they are entitled to more with less work. Just look at the nation's debt and obesity rates, for example, it screams entitlement. And those things have nothing to do with the children! It's so necessary to teach children at a young age how to avoid some of the pitfalls that are entrapping many in today's society. I liked their ideas (even if I'd read them all before); I just wanted more. This book is a good jumping off point for more discussion. "

    " This has become one of a handful of parenting books that I feel truly stand the test of time and provide great insights and principles for parents. I have read a few other works by the Eyre's and really feel like this one captures all of their greatest techniques and teaching all in one book. "

    " I liked the first half of the book, but the second half was pretty much just a plug for their other books. "

    " I thought that there were a lot of really good ideas in this book that I would like to incoorporate into our family. "
