BFBN: teaching appreciation in an entitled world

http://www.journeyofparenthood.com/2014/07/teaching-appreciation-in-entitled-world.html

It's Babywise Friendly Blog Network week!  All week, each of us will be sharing posts on the same topic and directing our readers to the different blogs in the network.  Here's the schedule for the week:

Monday:  Valerie from Chronicles of a Babywise Mom
Tuesday:  Maureen from Childwise Chat
Wednesday:  Rachel from A Mother Far From Home
Thursday:  Emily from Journey of Parenthood
Friday:  Claire from My Devising

Today, Emily blogs about the importance of instilling an attitude of appreciation rather than an attitude of entitlement.  When I think about Duke and where he is right now, the points that relate to us the most are not always getting what you want and limiting rewards.  Just because I can give Duke something he wants doesn't mean I always should.  Also, it's so tempting to reward Duke as often as I can for good behavior.  However, I want him to make good choices without the promise of getting anything in return.  Click here to read the rest of Emily's post!

Tomorrow is my day to share a post on attitude, so don't forget to come back!
