It was wonderful to see SO many great blog posts and stories on Entitlement yesterday. Here are a the great things people shared in their posts:
As a great tool for helping our kids realize how blessed they are, Chrysula linked to this great photo essay at the NYTimes showing children around the world and where they sleep - the kids and I learned so much looking at these photos and had some great discussions. They show everything from a little boy who lives in a makeshift shack on top of a garbage dump to a pageant-queen 4-year-old with her decked-out princess bedroom: Where Children Sleep
My sister Saydi posted a great photo of serious entitlement courtesy of Pottery Barn along with great commentary in her post about Entitlement Awareness Day: Seriously Pottery Barn?
Whitney Johnson offered great insights (as always - she always makes me think) and a great story about her daughter in her post: Dare to Dream: The Entitlement Trap
