Family Remedy for Entitled Adults
The spirit of entitlement is tearing the destinies’ of over-pampered children in a lot of homes apart. How would you reconcile that feeling in an adult who at 35 still blames the parents for not owning that Benz they refused to bequeath him or the men who at 40 still rues their inability to make ends meet and blames the parents because he wasn’t educated in school or to the university level.
“Just because I no finish school some people take me for a fool…” familiar lines from Tuface
That husband that blames the wife for his financial woes or that wife that curses under her breath because of her fthw (fthw = full time housewife) status or because marriage came calling. No, don’t blame marriage, blame yourself.
Let us go back to the family. It is obvious that in this few cases that I cited, those adults were not trained to relies that their destinies are in their hands, absolutely. Bar any unforeseen circumstances as such as accidents, anyone can drive their destinies to their desired destinations. Some folks have achieved success, regardless.
Check out this funny/uncommon/unconventional remedy might be the antidote to practise.
In homes, rooms should not be allotted to kids; no room should be designated as children’s room. All rooms belong to either the mum or the dad. Whether it is a 1 room apartment or more than 1 bedroom homes, every room must bear the name plate “Mum’s Room” or “Dad’s Room”. Mum and dad can have multiple rooms with the extra rooms serving as extensions.
From the outset kids are aware that they live on rent. It should, in fact, be paid rent because they can pay from their allowee. The bizarre psychology of being comfortable in your parents homes at 25 is bewildering. Demanding they sponsor your expensive life style at 30, especially when they are unwilling to so, is a taboo.
This measure still needs lots of detailing and elaboration. For not wanting to bore you with words and paragraphs, this procedure is likely to prevent the onset of entitled spirit in upcoming and legendary/veteran adults.

I did like to point out that staying in your parents home at any age isn't entitlement in any way however, depending on them for your livelihood is what entitlement mean in this case. This said, the issue is many parents did not raise their wards to be independent and that is why we now have adults who pushes the blame on the next person and not willing to take responsibility for their (in)actions.

I probably was 'entitled ' yet I turned out fine. I had my own room growing up, my education was sponsored to masters level, I was still being given an allowance during my masters program. I stayed home till I got a job which was in my late 20's.
My family gave me a decent life.That didn't stop me from being ambitious, driven and disciplined. I have my own family and material success to go with it. Life has no rules my friend.

The effect of weak parents! Who is the boss, the parent or the child? And who is supposed to be greater?
Then what would you say about a 36 and 32yr olds who are fuelled by their parents to do nothing, Rented house, furnished, generator at will, yet none of them work neither are they looking for one, neither are the parent pressing them to get one?
