About Amy’s Book

The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic – A Step By Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World is meant to be more than a book. It’s a resource that today’s often frustrated parents can use to give the confidence, know-how and even words to say to kick entitlement to the curb and rid your home of the entitled behaviors that are not only driving you nuts, but also giving you cause for concern about your children’s future. Misbehaviors and entitled attitudes will melt away, as kids of all ages learn to pitch in around the house, solve their disagreements respectfully, take responsibility for their actions and even put down their smartphones once in a while. This dream is within your reach and your kids will be better off for it.

The 35 tools you’ll learn will bring out your kids’ very best behavior (no more chore wars, homework battles and sassy attitudes) and help them develop the responsibility, resilience, and respectfulness they need to lead a successful adult life. You’ll do it all while you extinguish the “me, me, me” epidemic and make your home a haven of peace in a world of entitled attitudes.

“Do you cave in to your kids' demands even when you know it's a bad idea? Do you rescue your kids when they forget things? Do you find yourself ‘over-contributing’ to your child's school project so he can meet the deadline? Most parents do these things because they can't figure out what else to do in the heat of the moment. Amy McCready shows parents why this kind of parenting raises kids who don't learn from experience, don't take responsibility, and are no fun to live with! She describes exactly what parents can do and say to set appropriate limits and help kids develop resilience.”
