Let’s talk tonight about Entitlement Mentality. We will explain what entitlement means. We will explain the difference between an entitlement and a right, with some layperson’s research & opinions from a legal standpoint (again, we are not attorneys, so please consult an actual lawyer if necessary.) We will then cover the concept of entitlement from social, legal, and psychological points of view, as well as health and unhealthy senses of entitlement.
We hope to then help our listeners to recognize a healthy sense of entitlement, and how to cope with someone whose sense of it is unhealthy, or even to recognize it in one’s self, and to address that.
We will be taking calls from our listeners all evening during the show, and questions in the online chatroom.
