How Not to Spoil Your Kids, and What to Do if You Have

Richard Watts

For everything you give your child, you take something away.
Well-intentioned parents across the country are enabling a “me” generation of children who lack the wisdom and satisfaction of accomplishment that only struggle and adversity can bring. 

As a veteran advisor and legal counsel to America’s most successful families, Richard Watts has seen the extremes of entitlement up close and wants to help you avoid creating it in your own children. Entitlemania will teach you how to redirect kids and repair adults who believe the world owes them something.  Your greatest challenge may be learning to control your own actions!

Entitlemania will provide practical strategies like creating boundaries, walking your talk, and allowing children to fend for themselves. A groundbreaking book that sheds important light on an increasingly pervasive social trend affecting children at every age—and at every income bracket! The big takeaway for parents: You may have to let your children fail so they can learn how to succeed.

As personal advisor and legal counsel to the super wealthy, Richard Watts is called on to counsel his clients on some of the most intimate decisions they have to make. He spends his workdays within the castle walls of America’s most successful families.

Richard studied economics at University of California at San Diego, Earl Warren College, and was admitted to practice law in California in 1982. He is an alumnus of Harvard Business School.

His primary passion is conveying the wisdoms of life through his practice, lectures, and writings.

Richard and his wife, Debbie, live in Laguna Beach, California, in the neighborhood of their three boys: Aaron, Todd, and Russell; two daughters by marriage Rene and Stephanie; and his three extra-special grandchildren, Maclane, Lucy, and Chandler.
