Teaching Generosity 

    It’s important to guard against allowing your world to revolve around your child once he reaches this milestone and steps further into the world outside of home. A child who believes the world revolves around him is in danger of developing a sense of entitlement and a me-focused attitude—both of which are the enemies of generosity. 
    Entitlement is a real battle for children in today’s world. It’s challenging to protect them from feeling that they deserve everything they want, but there’s a simple antidote to entitlement: “Service” Teaching a child to serve and give with an open heart prevents the “me attitude” and I’m learning that daily with my 11 year old.
