This is an excellent article. Our culture needs an overhaul, and it must start with the parents and the schools. Unfortunately, millions of parents are mental adolescents, having themselves been raised by mental adolescents. Likewise, millions of teachers are also perpetual adolescents, having themselves been turned out by the failing schools they now work for, schools where they were pampered and babied and given trophies for achieving nothing. A perfect example of how we infantilize our society (and encourage its rude and petulant behavior) is the fact that obamacare allows "kids" to stay on their parents' insurance till age 26. At age 26, I had been on my own, working for three years, and had my own family.
