A sense of entitlement

A sense of entitlement casts a wide net. Kids feel entitled to
Name brand clothes,
Spending money,
Technology, from cell phones and lap tops to Wi games and ipods,
Education at all its levels whether they apply themselves or not,
Access to friends whenever they want, and to whatever their friends have,
“Freedom” to do what they want and be where they want whenever they want.

The interesting thing is that the things kids feel entitled to are the very things we would like them to feel responsibility for.
