Are You Saying Thank You?

Spring Bookworm-Saying Thank You book cover-Chispa Magazine

Does your child suffer from Entitlement Syndrome? Yes, that’s actually a ‘thing’ —Urban Dictionary describes it as, “When you think about what you’re entitled to before you consider anyone else.”

Saying Thank You, the new non-fiction children’s book from Monisha Vasa, M.D., demonstrates a loving dialogue between a parent and child. Told through animals indigenous to the Indian Rainforest, each page reminds parent and child to be thankful for life’s simple things including the food that nourishes our bodies, the magic of time shared together, and feet that carry us forth.

As a psychiatrist, parenting blogger for The Huffington Post and mother of two school-aged children, Dr. Vasa is intimately aware of the effect Entitlement Syndrome is having on today’s generation of children, and Saying Thank You, promotes the concept of gratitude to the littlest of learners.

Best of all, it provides an important foundation for raising grateful, not entitled, children. Plus it establishes a springboard for open door dialogue between parent and child, and fosters lifelong mental health practices at an early age.
