For everything you give your child, you take something away…
Entitlemania is an epidemic. Well-intentioned parents across the country have enabled a “me” generation of children who lack the wisdom and satisfaction of accomplishment that only struggle and adversity can bring. A veteran advisor and legal counsel to America’s most successful families, Richard Watts has seen the extremes of “entitlemania” 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. This is a wake-up call for parents: Although you act with the best of intentions, your actions can unwittingly be damaging to those you hold dearest.

Fables of Fortune
Do you believe a little more money would solve most of your problems?
Imagine private jets ready for an afternoon flight to New York City for a transcontinental shopping trip… luxury yachts circling the globe awaiting their owner's arrival…. fully staffed but rarely visited vacation homes throughout the world. The rich live trouble-free lives of graceful ease. Or do they?
Fables of Fortune pulls back the brocade curtain to reveal the precarious path of wanting more. As the advisor to the super rich, author Richard Watts reflects on the reality of wealth and a difficult and heartbreaking lesson: "The richest person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least."
