We first told you last week about parents who overpraise their kids, and how overpraising everything they do can cause the kids to grow up to be arrogant adults.

We shared with how new research out of Amsterdam is backing this up, too. They found too much praise makes kids feel entitled to special treatment.

We brought in our child and family therapist Dr. Larry Curry to get his take on it.
