They don't understand the value of earning something through hard work and sacrifice. They don't know how to handle adversity. They don't know how to handle loss. They think they are entitled to be anything they want, make the salary they want, have the job they want, have the significant other they want. They've been brainwashed to believe it's all about them and have no idea that true happiness comes from giving to others freely without expectation.

Life is about the journey, not the end, the goal. We have simplified life and stripped people of their purpose. Rewards are handed out to children for nothing more than participating and, in many cases, the same is true for young adults. They are allowed to delay maturity (and keeping them dependent on parents as in remaining dependents for health insurance purposes, makes it official). What they is life without the striving, the failures, the loss, and ultimately, the success. Life becomes a beige path through a foggy glen. I suspect that I too would be tempted to commit suicide

While I don't agree with anything from townhall.com I'd add that we as parents gave them everything.
