Have been watching kids grow up into these things the last couple of years. I think it's mostly disillusionment, pampering parents, or just out and out laziness. I know a guy in my grade (17 years) whose mom still picks out his clothes every day. I also know a lot who either don't think they're smart enough or that there's no point in trying. Then of course there are the lazy assholes who can't be bothered to do anything but smoke pot and play video games or mess around on Facebook.

Anyway, I'm still a kid, more or less, so I don't have exactly the distance to get a clear perspective. This is just what I've noticed.
Insanity we trust.

WHAT IN THE FUCCK---My Three Year Old Picks out her Own Clothes Every Morning---Upon Approval from me-She can wear most anything (if it is washed and cleaned).

WTF-See 17 yr old people not being able to pick out their own clothes.

FUK-

I wanna know why.

Why-Why are people breeding who do not nor cannot teach these adolescence peeps soon to be adults-how to be self sufficient.


Fred-Really- you had peeps choosing what you were going to wear at age 18?

No disrespect-(cause I dig you) but What The Fuck, couldn't you make your own decisions and sustain yourself at age EIGHTEEN????

I pegged you as a self sustained being.
(were you forced into this arrangement?)

Army is different than buggering off and living in someone's basement for a year or four.
Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial increases in corpse production.

I've seen entirely too many bright peers fail because of lack of motivation. I never really got it. Maybe it's because my parents aren't the same generation as most of my peers' (I'm a child of my dad's second marriage- my oldest half-brother is forty).

This is really important! People don't realize.

I attended a lecture a month or so ago, about childhood brain development. The lecturer expressed real sorrow at the fact that most kids just aren't raised right, and we end up with a world populated with neurotic, insecure, self-centered, dysfunctional adults.

Yeah. That last bit pretty much applies to me. I left home at 18 and have been deprogramming myself ever since.

Myself as well.

What were the specifics on how kids werent raised right?

In this case it was about childhood trauma and brain development, and trauma included parental abandonment, abuse, and neglect. "Abandonment" can include divorce when one parent is incapable or unwilling to parent cooperatively. "Abuse" can include a distant, overly critical, or nonresponsive parent.
