Publisher Description

Dump the allowance-and use a new "Family Economy" to raise responsible children in an age of instant gratification.
Number-one New York Times bestselling authors Richard and Linda Eyre, have spent the last twenty-five years helping parents nurture strong, healthy families. Now they've synthesized their vast experience in an essential blueprint to instilling children with a sense of ownership, responsibility, and self-sufficiency. At the heart of their plan is the "Family Economy" complete with a family bank, checkbooks for kids, and a system of initiative-building responsibilities that teaches kids to earn money for the things they want. The motivation carries over to ownership of their own decisions, values, and goals. Anecdotal, time-tested, and gently humorous, The Entitlement Trap challenges some of the sacred cows of parenting and replaces them with values that will save kids (and their parents) from a lifetime of dependence and disabling debt.

Unnecessary religious undertones

This book on parenting in no way indicates the heavy leaning of fundamentalist teachings within it... It slips in "prayer" and condescending remarks about welfare recipients. I personally prefer to read books that aren't laced with religious dogma. It's very possible to be a good person and a good parent without belonging to an organized religion.
