Spoiled Rotten. It starts with designer diapers. It extends to extravagant birthday parties, leads to boorish behavior and plummeting grades.
What is the problem here? It's what we are doing to our children by not having the smarts to set boundaries, impose rules, and give them the firm, unwavering guidance they really need. Finally, someone has written a book to help beleaguered parents take back their homes and their children. With specific tactics, unforgettable one-liners, and dead-on-target advice, Fred Gosman shows you how to manage your children.
Keep Reading. Under the Cover An excerpt from Spoiled Rotten. Remember when kids cut lawns rather than classes, and swore by their parents, not at them? When people got their self-esteem from their home, not from a class in school, and professional tennis players actually behaved? Recently five children in Pennsylvania were discovered in a park using bags of grass clippings and sugar to operate a make-believe cocaine ring.

Excellence is declining; thoughtfulness is for squares. And good manners is belching softly. The very moral fabric of society is endangered. Our mayors do drugs; many high schools have nurseries. Alcoholism has invaded the middle school, and date rape on campuses is completely out of control. Many children today believe they were put on earth to play, that everything must be fun. Math and writing skills are considered irrelevant, needless in an age of calculators, and computers with spell checkers. Recently a high school teacher assigned a Dickens novel as homework.
And this in an age of power mowers and snow-throwers. Many ten-year-olds know the names of twice as many beers as political leaders. And as standards in general and student performance decline, work that was once described as mediocre is now praised as excellent, with the result that our children are never pushed to discover their true potential.

Our Spoiled, Rotten Children
Oct 31, Tatiana Blinova rated it it was amazing. Great book about traditional parenting. It should be given out at high school offices. Feb 01, Alenna rated it did not like it. I was not impressed with this book at all. Most of this book is really just a rant and the "program" for discipline that is referenced in the final chapters is so vague that I doubt any parent got much useful information about this.
With that said, it was a little nostalgic to read this book which was written in '91! And it also made m I was not impressed with this book at all. And it also made me realize that my kids are probably not too spoiled since they don't get everything they want, they don't see their parents getting everything they want, and they do have consequences when they misbehave. Of course, there's always room for improvement Mar 12, Maia rated it liked it.
I read this before I had children. Before I was even married, actually. Now that I have just had my third child, I think i will read it again. Susan rated it liked it Mar 01, Dayna rated it liked it Apr 28, Esther Duran rated it liked it Aug 22, Neema rated it it was amazing Apr 02, Maria rated it liked it Jul 17, Trish rated it liked it Feb 20,
