Reviews - What do customers think about From Innocence to Entitlement: A Love And Logic Cure for the Tragedy of Entitlement?
Love Fay Jul 25, 2008
The first few chapters are the definition and statistics about entitilement written by Dawn Billings. If this is the information you need, you might like it. It was interesting but these first few chapters just went on and on and I found myself yelling, "Okay, you already said that, okay, get to the point!" Once I got through those parts Jim Fay's half is about what we can do to stop entitlement and prevent it. This is what I am interested in and Jim Fay is such an excellent writer. For this half, the book is well worth it!
From Innocence to Entitlement Feb 27, 2008
A must read for all parents leaving the hospital with their newborn. Or at least given to all parents registering their child for kindergarten. A lightbulb moment every page I read. This philosophy and perspective has nothing to do with money, income or things.
Don't add to love and logic library Feb 15, 2008
If you are new to Love and Logic, this is a great book. If you are not, then all of the "techniques" are redundant; however, I loved all of the information that basically describes how this disease of entitlement came about in the first place (but I think you'd probably get more in depth information from Dawn Billings book Entitled to Fail, Endowed to Succeed, which is quoted heavily in this book.
A good pep talk Feb 8, 2008
Another great book from the Love and Logic people. Much of this book is about identifying how poor parenting and our self absorbed culture can mix to create kids with a sense of entitlement that can eat a child alive. I felt that this was largely a rehash of previous love and logic books, yet directed on one particular area where good parenting can make a huge difference. If parents could see this entitlement tragedy coming, they may be able to work against it. I love the scripted responses to typical kid attacks. Sometimes I need someone to tell me what to say and to remain calm. It's not easy. All my kids are teens now and suffer from different degrees of entitlement. Not too long, full of stories and examples.
A worthy read Jan 7, 2008
This book was purchased with hopes that we would gain insite to our daughters difficulties. Only to be enlightened to a whole other world of possibilities, HELP Boy did we get a crash course in Entitlement and great sage advise as well.
I highly recommend this book for anyone dealing with the gimmies of any age.
