I immediately deleted my email from the RNC today when I saw "John McCain" in the subject line. So this McCain email did not do very well with this Republican supporter.

They have a daily chore list which they are expected to do, and for which they DO NOT get paid. They have to do things above and beyond the daily expectations of making their beds & picking up their toys to earn money. And they are frequently given the opportunity to go to work with my husband, who does construction work, to earn money. They can also earn a dollar for reading an entire chapter book, as we stress academics around here as well. We are not perfect parents, but we do know that we cannot stand most of the kids who come around our house because of their entitlement attitudes!

You have no idea how much I love this article. I feel like I get on a soapbox at least once a day on this very same issue. I have countless friends who give, give, give and never have an expectation of their kids. Not even that they keep their rooms picked up or carry dirty dishes to the kitchen. I am VERY concerned about what will happen when I get to retirement and these spoiled brats are the ones left to keep the country running. My boys are 7 and 8. For at least the last 2 years, they have had to EARN money for the things they want. They get a birthday present and a NORMAL amount of Christmas presents, but just about anything else they want, they earn the money and buy it themselves.
