Sometimes kids have no choice to leave their hometowns for an education. It’s no secret that some colleges are far better than others. I’m 51 and although I love my kids very much, I would like to see them out on their own ASAP. I believe that parents should not have to support adult kids, especially when they’ve received all the emotional and financial support that their peers may never receive. Why keep working just to pay the extra cost of insurance, taxes, utilities and all the repairs of owning a house just so the kids can stay at home. I could buy a condo and cut my expenses in half. Like most people my age, my job is stressful and I want to retire in the near future. It’s very difficult to retire when adult kids are still living at home eating and using utilities. For 20 years it’s been all about the kids. When does it become all about the parents?

There was once a time when if you didn’t know how to do something, you had to either know someone that knew how to do it or try to figure it out and mess up until you got it right. Not anymore. A quick search on Google will bring up instructional YouTube videos, blog posts, and PDF’s that show you how to do anything. In the . it is very obvious what all these electronic toys are doing to the kids. Pre teens so fat they get out of breath just walking 50 feet to the mailbox. They make no effort whatever to exercise anything but their thumbs. By playing video games at home kids playing outdoors games like soccer volleyball and other games that are ment for outdoors. Kids could get lazer and lazier and lazier day by day.
