"Meredith Mitchell's encouraging tone draws listeners into Kristen Welch's message by making the author's perspectives on family life sound more hopeful and empowering than prescriptive." ---AudioFile --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
Rearing children in our contemporary culture is difficult, but rearing grateful children is even harder. In Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Kristen Welch gives solid practical advice. Grateful children become responsible adults. I highly recommend this book. (Gary Chapman, Ph.D., Author of The Five Love Languages)
Parents today fight what seems like a never-ending battle against the current of the culture in raising our children. In Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Kristen not only inspires us to raise our children differently, but she teaches us how to actually live that out in our homes. So very practical and convicting. A must-read! (Ruth Schwenk, Pastor’s wife and mama to four, coauthor of Hoodwinked, and creator of TheBetterMom.com)
In this fast-paced, instant gratification culture, Kristen’s countercultural message of selflessness and gratitude is much needed! This book left me convicted, challenged, and encouraged, both personally and as a parent. (Crystal Paine, Founder of MoneySavingMom.com and New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode)
I absolutely love this book. Kristen unearths the heart issue of why many children are selfish and unaware of the needs of others. Her words engage, inspire, and instruct parents in raising emotionally strong, healthy children who are grateful in the important moments of life. (Sally Clarkson, Author of The Lifegiving Home and Own Your Life, and blogger at SallyClarkson.com)
I can’t think of anyone I would trust more than Kristen to teach on this topic. She’s made her entire life a testimony to doing this well, and everyone who reads this book will be inspired by her story, her heart, her wisdom, and her love of the Lord. (Angie Smith, Bestselling author of several books and Bible studies including, Chasing God and Seamless)
Kristen’s words are so timely, and I am thankful for her hard-fought wisdom. I am all ears whenever Kristen writes because she just gets it, and it was no different with this book. If you’re looking for support and practical ideas on how to raise grateful kids in an increasingly entitled world, this book is a must-read. (Sarah Mae, Author of Longing for Paris)

My kids do have cell phones. My husband worked two jobs so we could afford to send them to private school outside our city, so communication was needed for transportation. So, I guess this book was really meant for people who have spoiled rotten kids and/or people who are upper middle class. I thought I'd see some areas of improvement, and believe me, I have MANY areas of needed improvement, but my now college-aged kids are pretty thankful for all that we do for them. That part of buying the book was MY mistake. I thought it would be an interesting read. I also hoped the book would help me with ideas for dealing with parents (as a middle school teacher) of entitled kids.
My issue is the author goes off topic when discussing an entitled world. I am a Christian. My entire family is involved in our church, but I do not judge the LGBT community. Who am I to think I am better than them? Yes, I believe marriage in my church should be between a man and a woman. However, I think gay and lesbian couples have right to marry in a civil ceremony, but those are not issues I was expecting to read or think about with this book.
I did not appreciate that part of the book at all. I thought this book would help me to make sure that I am not trying to be entitled. I thought this book would give me ideas to share with my children or students about being grateful for all that we have. I did not want to read a book judging what is morally right or wrong with Kaitlyn Jenner.
This book made me grateful for my kids. The one area they may have been "entitled" is that I have and will continue to fund their college education which is not covered by scholarship. Saying that their education is not a "right" is silly to me. So I guess my kids are entitled with a little bit of assistance with their education. Otherwise, we're not doing so bad as parents, I guess.
If you have concerns that your kids may be entitled and you get "uncomfortable" seeing Jenner on Vanity Fair, this book may be for you.
This book redirected my pointing finger from my man cubs' entitled & ungrateful behavior, right back at me. I wasn't even sure if I liked the book during the first few chapters because of the conviction it delivered. After I came to terms with needing that slap in the face reality check, I was able to draw more out of the book.
I may not agree with everything in this book, and not all applies to our household just yet, but I will be keeping this close as my man cubs grow up to reference from time to time. I think this has been a great stepping stone in guiding me to instilling gratitude in our home, and it was definitely worth the read and the investment for our family.
I received a pre-released PDF copy of the book for free as being part of the launch team. Rest assure, I would NOT be promoting anything I didn't believe in, and this is an honest review of this book. To hear more about our journey with gratitude, go to MamaRevivalSeries.com
