Why are our kids so unhappy?
Are we teaching them to be ungrateful?
Unhappy in Training
Today’s kids are actually trained to be unhappy and they’re learning it from adults. They’re seeing politicians, educators, entertainers, and everyone else who’s anybody complaining about anything and everything that leads to not getting their way. This can lead to entitlement. And when you’re entitled you can’t possibly be grateful. When you’re not grateful you’re not getting the serotonin hit that so many kids are addicted to thanks to today’s digital glut.
Consequently, we’re seeing a systemic victim mentality in America. So I’m suggesting you dial back on your kid’s serotonin-inducing digital privileges and start increasing their hands-on responsibilities and obligations. Then, after some initial battles, watch them come to life.
