· ?People are stupid, lazy, or they don?t give a damn.? You already know you need to do something; Larry will help you finally do something.
· Are you more interested in looking cool and being cute or providing a financially secure future for your family? How you spend your money will tell you that.

Straight-talking, bestselling Pitbull of Parenting Larry Winget says "This is not a fix your kid book. It's a fix the way you parent book. You owe it to your kids to parent with a plan!"

Being a parent is the toughest job in the world, especially with the increasing number of negative influences and pitfalls facing our kids today, from childhood obesity and out-of-control celebrity culture to the dangers of the internet and credit card debt. Larry Winget has never been one to shy away from tough truths, and what he says here may well be difficult for some parents to swallow: we are in the midst of a crisis with our kids. Kids today are over-indulged, over-entertained, under-achieving, and under-disciplined, with a sense of entitlement that is crippling society. And the real problem is that parents aren't paying attention to what's going on. If they were they would realize that most kids today barely read and write, except with their thumbs on their cell phones!

Well-behaved, respectful kids are the exception, not the rule, and for the most part, parents are to blame. Responsible parenting is about beginning with the end in mind and parenting with a plan. But most parents have never stopped to consider what kind of adult they want to raise. They have all this fun creating a baby, but they don't have a plan for the end product.

Larry's message to parents: Teach your kids to become the best adults they can be. But don't expect your kids to improve until you improve. Your Kids Are Your Own Fault covers familiar lessons and principles that have led Larry's readers to greater success with money, career, and goal setting, this time at a level where they can be taught to children. This book shows parents how to design the adult they want their kid to become and work backwards to make sure it happens. Kids don't come with an instruction manual, but finally being a parent does!

The cancer of “political correctness” has not only helped to form a society of insincere, oversensitive, and under-achieving people-it has deprived individuals from the joy of living authentically and boldly; the life the late Henry David Thoreau called people to live when he implored us to move “confidently in the direction of our own dreams.” Well, living authentically and boldly has never been a problem for Larry Winget. Known as the Pitbull of Personal Development® , Larry is not afraid to “tell it like it is” about what it takes to be successful. And he's also not afraid of “skewering” some of those well-known shibboleths of personal development---like The Law of Attraction and the path of “effortless success” that are peddled by so many motivational speakers. In this program, Larry will take on the “political correctness” that has infected our society, and the personal development industry. And, he'll outline an effective “back to the basics” approach to help YOU be more successful. Larry still believes that hard work and excellence are the keys to success and communicates that like no other person on the planet can! Larry makes you think. He makes you uncomfortable. He offers common sense solutions that are impossible to argue with. On top of all that, he is hilarious. Here's just a few things you'll learn in this unforgettable program: • Why being “politically correct” will leave you unhappy, uninspired and unsure about your future. • Why it takes a “contrarian” approach to be successful and true to yourself in this upside-down “politically correct” world. • Why you need to “fix yourself first” rather than putting your focus on how to fix others or society. • Why letting go of your need for approval is essential to happiness. • How to get to the point and ask for what you want in life-directly and decisively. • How to make big, bold and brash plans for your life. • The biggest problem preventing entrepreneurs from being successful in business in our modern world. • How getting rid of “politically correct” excuses about money can save you financially.
