Very interesting take. I was talking to a man a few weeks ago that was having trouble with his adult kids. He was going on about how the problems were his wifes fault. He told her so as a matter of fact. It was a big problem in his marriage apparently. We talked about the need to read and he said he had to force one of his kids to read. Once she started reading she found that she enjoyed it. He said she was doing noticeably better and her attitude changed for the better. I find everything you say true, I am unsure about the entire mess being a result of poor parenting in the first 7 years. I think that was true in the past before technology went into overdrive. I think today we have other factors involved due to said technology/information overload.edit on 10-1-2013 by jimmiec because: (no reason given)
