There are many claims today in the press that today's kids are spoiled, self centred, selfish and even narcissistic. Dr Rosina McAlpine interviews Mr Alfie Kohn on his recent book The myth of the spoiled child.
Mr. Alfie Kohn writes and speaks widely on human behavior, education, and parenting. He is the author of thirteen books and numerous articles, and lectures at education conferences and universities as well as to parent groups and corporations. For more information see www.alfiekohn.org
Mr Kohn uses a research-based approach to his work and in today's interview you'll learn:
1. Whether there is truth to the claim that kids today are "spoiled"
2. What kind of parenting helps children grow to be happy, healthy and well-balanced individuals
3. More about what it means to be an unconditional parent

Yes there are plenty of people walking this earth with college degrees, technical school certifications and real world work experience that go through a patch in their lives where they either won't work or keep a steady job. What's up with that? Are they on drugs? Lazy? Depressed? Spoiled? Going through something?
A life that is left unattended can spoil. This kind of inattention is decay that comes about because of a subtle forgetting coming together with the ego’s rigid reality of inertia. The result is stagnation. Tune in this week as Lisa Jones and I discuss the guilt that comes from the spiritual demand to remove the cause of such decay. This aspect of spirituality is not simply attending to 'what has been spoiled' but also focusing on ‘the work’ that brings about renewal. The theme is that what has been spoiled by our forgetfulness can also be made whole again through effort. Success depends upon proper deliberation and orientation to the task. We must first know the cause of our inattention or distraction before we can do away with its affect. In this show we learn that decisiveness and proper energy takes the place of inertia and indifference, the very thing that led to our decay in the first place.
HOW TO OVERCOME THE STRONGMAN
In Luke's Gospel, He speaks of overcoming (nikao) the strongman so that his palace can be invaded and his goods spoiled.
This not only is a significant spiritual warfare passage, but it could reasonably be taken to apply to multi-leveled demonic activity.
The incident begins with grand -level
spiritual warfare as Jesus casts a demon
out of a mute (Luke 11:14).
But Jesus then goes on to talk about Satan's kingdom (Luke 11:18) and a palace (Luke 11:21) and Beelzebub who is a high prince of demons but ranked under Satan himself.
This could be seen as an escalation of Jesus' scope of conquering or overcoming.
In the parallel passages on the strongman in Matthew and Mark, Jesus does not use the word for 'overcome,' but the word for 'bind' (see Matt. 12:29 and Mark 3:27).
It is the same word used in Matthew 16:19 where Jesus says, 'Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.'
We are justified, therefore, to use interchangeably the terms 'overcome,' 'conquer' or 'bind' when we describe our activity in taking the offensive against the enemy in spiritual warfare.
