I'm not sure where to start about my feelings with this book - I think it has a good premise and I really wanted to like it and really dive into it but I just didn't find this book as helpful as I was hoping. I like the idea behind it, making sure our children don't grow up with a sense of entitlement but I found myself thinking, when am I going to hear something besides how her children reacted? It was her experience of an experiment she set up for her family and I thought it was good but I guess I was just looking for something more - something that could tell me how to implement the experiment with my family. Maybe I missed it but I just didn't get anything that gave me that a-ha moment that I was expecting, yes, it's good to hear about others experiences but I just didn't find the book able to keep me engaged.

Maybe I'll come back to it again sometime but at this stage in my life, maybe it's the busyness of my life at the stages my children are in, I don't know but it could also be we already do some of the things she did in the book and my children know they aren't entitled to anything. They don't know how to clean a bathroom, but then again, neither do I (thankfully my husband does) but regardless of that my children do know that they must pull their load in this house.

**Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of this book from Blogging For Books through Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given.
