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
You can also access my FREE parenting guide at www.DrRosina.com where you'll learn about empowering your children by giving them key life skills like time and money management, self esteem, resilience, communications skills and emotional intelligence - with each activity only taking 15 minutes at a time.
This is the 13th Anniversary of 9-11. We were at home as the alarm went off and the radio went on to the voice of the announcer saying, that a jumbo jet has just crashed in to the World Trade Center. We all experienced the shock of watching the 2nd Airliner crash into the 2nd Tower.
This is the day America changed.
As a baby boomer, we had parents who sacrificed and worked hard to get us through college, to get us started on the pathway to life. We went from ink wells to ball point pens. We went from manual typewriters to electric typewriters.
When we had our families, the X generation, we gave them everything we didn't have including a lack of work ethic. They learned to spend money using credit cards, have fun, drink and do drugs. All was rosey dosey until 9-11
That's when we started to wake up from la-la land, a land of milk and honey. We saw first hand how the world sees us as the rich and spoiled Americans and we realized there were people out there that don't like us. Then in 2009 when the housing market crashed, many, thousands lost their homes to foreclosure, almost having to start over again like in the 1970's.
Today many American's are bewildered and wondering what's next. How many Americans have moved out of America to safer countries to live in their opinion. Is there anything we can do? What went wrong?
Can we restore our nation?
Do we Hear the Crier of The Most High almighty ?
Natural Law is creating a devide within a spoiled and ravaged people. What side are you on .
SwCA Episode 166: I am used to having things MY WAY and I have NO PATIENCE when they aren’t. Help Me
SHOW NOTES: You are craving a new mountain to climb. This series, “SATISFACTION SATURATION™”, is for you. We will address the challenges in reaching the SATISFACTION SATURATION state in regards to specific experiences, how to recognize it, how to treat it, how to prevent it, and how to handle the feedback from other people (“Must be nice to have that job, that house, that car, that award,” etc.).
This specific episode is, “I Am Used To Having Things MY WAY and I Have NO PATIENCE When They Aren't. Help Me!"
Who are we after an extended time period of being catered to by others?
When we get used to having our needs and desires met (because we are the boss, the important client, the well paying supporter, etc.) it may result in us starting to believe that we deserve to be catered to and treated as a “special” person. We get used to having our meals served as we prefer and not having to wait in lines (because we are granted special access or we pay for extra convenience). Our ability to tolerate discomfort and to simply wait passively for attention is reduced. We start to think that any obstacle in our path is simply a temporary issue that with money or other resources will be removed from our life.
We know that we can often leverage our income and/ or power to make our lives easier. This is one of the primary reasons we made the sacrifices that we did to surpass our goals! We treat ourselves to our favorite experiences and why not? Yet, we are quick to anger and become frustrated when we hear that magic word that no human likes directed towards their request, “No.” We hear this word more rarely now (for some it is a faint memory from an earlier time that they try to forget
Amos Chapter 3
Viewing the Standard King James Version..
1Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying,
2You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
3Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
4Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?
5Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all?
6Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
7Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
8The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
9Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say, Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria, and behold the great tumults in the midst thereof, and the oppressed in the midst thereof.
10For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.
11Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.
12Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.
13Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob, saith the Lord GOD, the God of hosts,
