I know there are books on the subject, but I'm going for crowd sourced wisdom... what are the keys to raising gracious kids? When I come home from work, I occasionally (once per month ish) have a treat for the kids 6, 4, and 1. And apprently they enjoyed it so much, that most times I come home the kids run to me and ask "Did you bring a treat for me?". And then groans of disappointment when not. Is deprivation the best strategy? I'm hardly joking. My 6 year old loved chess until I taught him Agricola, and chess just became relatively unfun and he no longer likes it. I am scared to death about ever exposing him to video games... I learned as a parent it is far easier to never give than to have to take away... but how do I mold them to meet disappointment with grit and grace?
how to raise gracious (or not entitled) kids?
