PARENTING THE PAMPERED GENERATION
by Maggie Mamen
Despite our efforts to nurture and support our deeply loved and highly treasured families, our youngsters are frequently growing up with the ideas that they have servants to cater to their every whim, that money grows on trees, that everything that goes wrong is someone else's fault, and that the world simply needs to adjust so that they are never bored or uncomfortable. This presentation looks at lessons that we need to teach our children so that we can parent this generation with confidence, and encourage them to be prepared for the real world.
