“My kids are ungrateful. Is there anything I should be doing differently to get a little appreciation?”

Have you ever been frustrated that your kids never seem to appreciate all (or anything) you do as a parent? This week’s #TipsOnTeens question comes from a mother who is worried about this very thing. Here is this week’s #ParentingQuestion:

“Hello. I am a mother of three kids ages 6, 9, and 13. One of the things that has been bothering me lately is that my kids, more so my 13 year old, are extremely ungrateful. They take everything I do for them for granted and don’t thank me for anything. It was just Mother’s Day and they didn’t even wish me a Happy Mother’s Day. I’m OK with not receiving recognition for every little thing, but every now and then it would be nice to get some appreciation. I’m also worried it’s turning them into super entitled children. Is there anything I should be doing differently to get a little respect and appreciation?”
