I've always told my kids they have choices after high school. College, the military, or a job.
They are not staying in my house after graduation. I love my kids, but they have six months to live at home (for the rest of their lives). And I tell them that.
That puts me on the outside.
There is a growing trend among parents to coddle their children. To allow them to 'find themselves.'
An East Coast liberal with an East Coast liberal job wrote this month that we should not ask our kids what they want to be when they grow up.
He says it limits children.
A generation of snowflakes is now hitting the job market, and a lot of them don't want to work. They want to create or influence, but they don't want to work.
If we expect our children will take over and lead this country, we need to get serious about preparing them to do so. And that means talking about work. At age 6, 8, 10, 14, 16, and 18.
