Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:
Self-reliance is a tool many of today's youth seem to lack IMHO.
Agree, is it the personality or the generation?
I know what I would have done now and at his age, and both would have been considerably different. I would have been frustrated and disapointed and overwhelmed, anyone would have been.
However I think somehow it seems more people at this age have less skill and resources to manage or understand responsibility and consequences.
It would seem some are helping seeing the limitation and looking past it, some may be recognizing some aspect in their own experience. I won't question if they should or shouldn't, its their choice.
There's a lot to learn here. I'm happy to see community respond to help for what ever their reasons. Its not a mistake to help anyone, its a decision. My hope is that reflection afterword will show some evidence of change.
I still cringe at some of the things I did when i was younger, or yesterday. Maybe this tomorrow.
