Kids with a sense of Entitlement

A good proportion of the kids that I see today are very lucky kids. Lucky that they have all the food that they like eating, lucky that they have a lot of toys and gadgets, lucky that they have nice clothes, lucky that they get to go to lots of parties and holidays, just damn lucky. My kids are no different. It is only a matter of relativity……In general, the kids of this generation are just plain lucky. Can we blame them that they are born into such a lucky world? No. Can we teach them that there are a heck of a lot of children like them out there who are nowhere near lucky? Hell, yes.

I also find that the kids these days get things so easy. When they are of a certain age, they get a tricycle. Later, they get a scooter. Then, they get a bicycle. Later, a car! Should their family be wiped out one day (GOD FORBID), would this child know the first thing about fighting for survival? He gets everything so easy so how will he ever know how to work for anything? Unfortunately, unless you are born into the family of riches (and even then there is no guarantee) and never have to work a day in your life (I know people in this category, quite a few who shamelessly sit back and kick off their heels, but also many who respectfully make themselves useful to society. Actually, who am I kidding? Many? I take that back. A handful…..), chances are that at some point in your life, you may have to work. So why not then start early and begin gaining useful skills, right? What is all your riches gets pulled away right under your eyes in a flash? What do you do then? Go around begging and grovelling to close friends who suddenly turn out not to be such close friends after all?

Some people feel why work when you can sponge off others? Well, lucky you if you can sponge off others but where is your dignity? How would you ever gain any respect? There is such a thing called KARMA so before you think of sponging off others, think twice about where you might end up.

I’m going to make damn sure that my kids don’t come close to being any of those rich kids that I see frequently around me.

I’m just saying……

Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.

Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.

She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.

A beautiful life without limits.

Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
