Are we suffering from “Affluenza”?

Sheryl Cohen

Ed. Psych

Are our children growing up with a strong sense of entitlement?  Are they making increasing demands on our time, our attention, our financial resources, and our energy?  Do our children want everything and do we feel obligated to give it to them?   Are we suffering from Affluenza?


Affluenza is a personal and social ‘’disease’’ of over-consumption, commercialism and rampant materialism.  It has also been described as ‘’luxury fever’’.  It is the pursuit of having more and more.  It leads to stress, debt, waste, over-work, feelings of deprivation, envy and depression.  Affluenza is having a devastating impact on our families, our communities and the environment.  We have more money but less time; bigger homes but t less space; and our quality of life seems to be deteriorating.

To Birds and the Bees

May/ June 2019

How and when to tell your kids about the birds and the bees


If parents do not equip their children with correct and factual information in a loving and caring way, the kids find the incorrect and sensational “non” facts from their peers, siblings and other children, who know little or lopsided information, which they too usually received from other children. Adults are meant to be the ones teaching children about the birds and the bees.
