    This goes way beyond just teaching kids not to expect things

    done for them (although it does cover that very well.) It really gets to the heart of how our kids are being robbed of so many opportunities to teach them about being productive, creative, vital contributors to their families and communities. It helped me to see how I was keeping my kids from doing things that seemed too hard for them. When in the end, if they try to do something that is difficult and actually accomplish it, their self esteem and willingness to try new things is given a huge boost without a single 'good job' from anyone.

    The author argues that it is our responsibility as parents to "parent our children as if they're inherently strong instead of inherently weak". She contends that by always stepping in and doing for our children, we are keeping them from reaching their full potential, and that raising independent children is counter-cultural these days. She also says that she rose to this challenge when she realized that by setting such a low bar of expectation from her own children, she was raising children with low self-esteem and an entitled attitude. So, she redefined her parenting style and saw amazing results in herself and her children.

    Instead of sending her children the message of: "I love you so let me make life easy for you" her message should be: "I love you, I believe in you, I know what you're capable of, so I'm going to make you work."

    This audiobook was expertly narrated and was enjoyable to listen to. Ms. Gilbert even manages to get the inflection of the whiny children down perfectly. At 8 hours long, this audiobook does take a chunk of time to listen to, but is so well worth it.
