I, too, have long suspected the same thing, after having observed young people in my son’s friends circle who didn’t seem to have much knowledge of how to "do" life. It was astounding to me, because these kids may be growing up too be very dependent on others to run their lives. Sad, but there are parents who don’t seem to have the time — or maybe even the willingness — to properly parent, i.e , raised their kids to be competent, contributing, independent adults.

Good comments on a good, eye-opening article!
