New adults being less qualified for jobs has to do with expectations placed on them by their parents. The expectations include a good work ethic and success, along with kindness for humanity. The goal for the future differs with the qualities and interests and capabilities of each child. Parents need to show their children two things: love and a work ethic. And they need to let their children know that Mom and Dad (or just Mom/Dad) have a life of their own and do not intend to support their children after their college/training is finished.
