Publisher's Description

“But everyone else has it.” “If you loved me, you’d get it for me!” When you hear these comments from your kids, it can be tough not to cave. You love your children—don’t you want them to be happy and to fit in?

Kristen Welch knows firsthand it’s not that easy. In fact, she’s found out that when you say yes too often, it’s not only hard on your peace of mind and your wallet—it actually puts your kids at long-term risk. In Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Kristen shares the ups and downs in her own family’s journey of discovering why it’s healthiest not to give their kids everything. Teaching them the difference between “want” and “need” is the first step in the right direction. With many practical tips and anecdotes, she shares how to say the ultimate yes as a family by bringing up faith-filled kids who will love God, serve others, and grow into hardworking, fulfilled, and successful adults.

It’s never too late to raise grateful kids. Get ready to cultivate a spirit of genuine appreciation and create a Jesus-centered home in which your kids don’t just say—but mean!—“thank you” for everything they have.

    I've worked with the public since my first job delivering flowers. Though most people are nice enough to deal with, there are times that the tendency to entitlement in our society has been very apparent! I was always determined that I would raise kids who were appreciative rather than demanding.

    Fast forward a number of years and I'm a mom of 4. I'm in the trenches, and it's harder than I thought!

    Some of the things do seem like a no-brainer, like not giving your kids everything they want and having them learn the value of work. Of course, reading about some of the nitty-gritty details and really analyzing how well you are doing in that area is completely different! So don't skip a chapter because you think, "We've got this covered."

    There is a lot of good stuff to think about in this book. It's not a foolproof plan, and Kristen leaves room for each family to decide what is best for them. I appreciated that, since many parenting books take the stance, "Do it exactly our way or you are wrong."

    Interestingly enough, reading this book made me realize how much I tend to entitlement and ungratefulness myself! Ouch!

    Even if you think this isn't a problem for you or your family, this book is worth reading at least once. I'll bet that you'll come away with new ideas and maybe areas where you could do things a little better.

    Living against the culture of entitlement...

    Choosing to live a life of gratitude sure is harder than it sounds. Everywhere we go, everywhere we look, we are bombarded by our need more and need it now culture. Patience seems to be a rarity. Compassion is hard to come by. Gratefulness is a bit of a mystery. It's so easy to be sucked into what society says about deserving more and better and it's hard to step back and say, "No. I already have all I need."

    Kristen Welch, of We are THAT Family, gets it. Her book, Raising Grateful Kids in and Entitled World, launches on January 26. After reading just the first chapter, I knew this book was going to challenge me in some really uncomfortable ways. What I didn't know when I started reading, was that the convictions I gained from the book would lead us to explore our entitlement as a family. I didn't expect to implement new plans to combat that as quickly as we have. And I certainly never dreamed I would already see a difference in not only the kids, but the adults as well.

    Choosing gratefulness and fighting entitlement in our home is not an easy thing. It's an important one, though, and it's worth the struggle. Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World is an absolute must read for any parent (or any human!) who longs to live upstream and against our culture of entitlement.

    An Encouraging & Impactful Must-Read

    "Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World" is an encouraging and convicting book that will challenge how you parent your children, but even more so, it will cause you to examine your own heart and the ugly entitlement that might - possibly...maybe...probably - live there.

    Kristen shares from her experience and her heart about her triumphs and her own struggles in parenting, coming alongside to encourage the reader and say, "me, too," and not "you should always" or "you must." She confesses that she is still learning, but she freely gives from what she has already learned.

    While I love the many, many take-aways and quotables from this book, the true mark of a great book is when it makes a change in you and when you can easily apply its lessons to your life and in your family. This is one of those books!

    It is a must-read for every parent, grandparent, parent-to-be, and anyone who wants to help this next generation be more grateful and less entitled.

    *Thank you to Tyndale House Publishers for the advanced reader copy. My opinions and review are based solely on my enjoyment of the book.

    "When we have everything we are thankful for nothing. When we have nothing we are thankful for everything."

    Raising Grateful Kids was such a great parenting book! Being from a large family my kids are used to not getting everything they want when they want it and, for the most part, everyone is ok with that. But this book has been so eye opening! I see so many more things I can do to cause all of us to be more grateful for this amazing life we have- and it's not a celebration about things! I'm so grateful for Kristen Welch for shaking me out of my comfort zone and reminding me of the things that are most important.

    Raising Grateful Kids holds the answers to a world of Pinterest and Facebook perfection that leaves you feeling inadequate and wanting.
