What is The Entitlement Fix online course?
Four 30-minute, pre-recorded sessions on YOUR schedule!
A 4-session online course to help you grow hard work and gratitude in your kids.
Prepare your kids to be both respectful and responsible.
Feel like the kids run the house?
Infants are naturally entitled to have all their needs met by you and don’t have to say thank you. Adults are not.
That transition from healthy infant entitlement to healthy adult interdependence has always been difficult.
You are not alone in this struggle, and neither are your kids! Teaching responsibility and gratitude is possible.
Got a small group?
Small group version available year-round
Gather your friends and take the course together any time! The small group version provides an unmoderated course with the exact same life-changing curriculum, so you and your small group can encourage each other in your parenting growth.
The Entitlement Fix Online Course

What parents say

I saw a lot of change in my own behavior —modeling enjoying a job well done and modeling thankfulness to the people around me.
Mom of 4
Jim and Lynne Jackson, co-founders of Connected Families, speak to thousands of parents a year through Connected Families, the ministry they founded in 2002.
Over the years, Jim and Lynne have watched as our culture has churned out kids who seem more and more entitled and discontent with what they have. They felt there was a need to pass on their own knowledge and expertise to equip parents to raise kids who have hearts of gratitude and responsibility.

Could you tell me more about Connected Families?
Since 2002 Connected Families founders Jim & Lynne Jackson have worked almost daily in the trenches with parents. Their discoveries have helped thousands of parents grow in skills and confidence. The basic idea is this: When parents make the primary goal of their parenting to get their children to “behave right” parents and kids generally become adversaries. But when parents learn to focus first on helping their children grow into healthy, biblically-based beliefs about themselves and the world, these parents become allies with their kids and gain great influence in their lives.
