Parents Getting a Raw Deal?

Carl B. Forkner, Ph.D.

This is a share of an article from last year that I recently read. The article is by Rhonda Stephens and is called Parenting: Are We Getting a Raw Deal? 

Much of Rhonda’s article struck a chord with me when I read it. Over the last decade and a half, youth have grown increasing attitudes of entitlement–usually without a requisite level of responsibility…or accountability. To me, that defines the root cause of the problem–rewards without being earned; misdeeds without consequences; lack of respect for authority, including parents.

I hope you enjoy Rhonda’s article. Please feel free to leave respectful comments!
