Parenting Points

This week's feature ... Parenting in a world of entitlement ... Children are naturally self-centred and wired to think primarily of what works best for them in the moment. But as they grow, they will begin to learn that they need to take other people's feelings into account, and they understand that they can't automatically have everything they want or have things go in their favour all the time. Parents may feel pressure to give their child more and more to keep them happy, but there are many small ways parents can avoid falling into the trap of raising a child with an unrealistic sense of entitlement.
