I’m so excited about this book! I received my ebook before Christmas and what perfect timing! It’s an entertaining read…and also an uncomfortable one at times, but as I eagerly read on…a necessary one.
It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing, wanting the best for your kids and wanting them to have every advantage. But our kids aren’t the only ones prone to entitlement, from spending for so-called necessities…rewarding and consoling ourselves through purchases, and even food.
Kristen tells her own family’s journey honestly and humbly. She recognizes that we’re all learning as we go.
This book will open your eyes, reshape your attitude, lend practical ideas for shaping your kids and steering them away from common attitudes. It even includes reflection questions to mull over!
Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World: How One Family Learned That Saying No Can Lead to Life’s Biggest Yes will help you rethink where your family chooses to invest time, money and values.
Here are three things Kristen wants you to know about her new book:
1. It’s not a how-to book or a tell-all. It’s validation; it’s encouragement; it’s a kick in the pants, but mostly, it’s a hug from one parent to another that says, “I know parenting is hard. I’ve been there. Heck, I am there. Let’s do this together.”
2. It’s by far one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Someone once told me that first you have to bleed out what you write and it couldn’t be more true. It’s challenged me and brought me to my knees!
3. This book wasn’t written from a professional opinion, it was penned from the trenches. It was written to be shared with other parents in your life. Would you consider sharing it today on social media? And make sure you check out my blog for a fun giveaway!
This is an awesome book…I’m so happy to be a part of the launch team…and even happier to have practical tips to help me raise my five kids to be grateful in an entitled world. #raisinggratefulkids #equippingcatholicfamilies
