Allison K., TX

Hi Sue, I realize that you are busy and in contact with many people. That doesn’t matter - I just wanted to send you a note and thank you for making such an impact on my family’s life. On November 8 2019, I placed a call to the number listed on helpyourteens.com. To my surprise, you answered the phone. I shared my story with you - my son was spinning out of control. He had become withdrawn, depressed, disinterested in school and sports, using drugs, negative friends, leaving home for days at a time. My son is gay and had been meeting adult males online, putting himself in very dangerous situations. You listened to every word I said, provided some reassuring words of wisdom and confirmed that I would be doing the right thing by seeking help for my son.... I feel so lucky to have made contact with you that morning and so thankful you told me about [redacted for privacy]. I’m certain that my son would not be where he is today if it wasn’t for you answering that phone call and for the wonderful people at [redacted for privacy]. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and share your knowledge. You are making a difference and have made a difference for someone very important in this world - my son.

    Teen Entitlement Issues: The Spoiled Brat GenerationThe Life of a Privileged Teenager

    Many parents only want the best for their children (usually more than they had growing up), but has this actually backfired on families?

    In today’s society, many teens have major entitlement issues. Parents feel that giving their teens material items will somehow earn them respect. Quite frankly, the opposite occurs in most families. The more we give, the more our children expect and the less they respect us. We lose ourselves in buying our children’s love. At the end of the day, no one wins and life is a constant battle of anger, hopelessness, and debt.

    While interviewing a young teen who was recently given a brand new car, the young woman felt she deserved it since her parents gave her two used ones previously. She was only 17 years old and already controlling her household. She truly believed that she was entitled to this car, showing no appreciation of respect for her parents. Simply, she deserved it. Can you imagine owning three cars by the age of 17, yet never buying one? This is an extreme example, but a lot of parents can probably relate.

    Entitlement issues can lead to serious problems. Teaching your child respect and responsibility should be priority. Although the issues may have started to escalate, as a parent, it is never too late to take control of the situation and say no when your teen feels they are entitled to a frivolous item or anything that is considered a privilege.

    Life is about responsibility, and as parents we need to teach this to our children. Helping them comes natural to us; however, when it becomes excessive and the child doesn’t appreciate it, it is time to step back and evaluate your situation.

    Are you experiencing a spoiled rotten brat? Defiant, rebellious and out-of-control especially when they don’t get their own way? Are you at your wit’s end? Feel like you’re a hostage in your own home?

    Read 5 signs your teen might be entitled.
