I'm going with the "actual parenting" option.

I agree with Michelle and Jodi on this one and am adding that not only do we need rules, consequences, consistency, and actually follow through on things; most parents these days do not seem to care or want to manage their kids and some are just too scared to do so. Kids are given what they want when they want it and are growing up expecting the world outside home to do the same exact thing and when it does not come their way they have a fit like a two year old.

Example: My niece was not raised to feel entitled or to feel that going to do things that required to be paid for should be paid by others. My sis did give in some and admits to that. But now my niece lives with her boyfriend and baby in his family home and live offf the family. When someone talks about doing something or going somewhere she gets right on on it as if she is going to go to. For instance with movies, she makes a list in her head of what she wishes to see and gets mad because someone else did go and she did not. She is not accepting the fact that not everyone is going to pay for her to do things and she is 21. She thinks its everyone else's responsiblity to take care of her.

I'd go with Jodi and actually parent children. They learn from us and how we set boundaries, not letting them do what they want and us just prying. That doesn't work.

Or we could just have very consistent rules and boundaries, and stop spoiling them. That works too.
