in my experience with my kids and some others that i know well, i think the way of life has changed from we had and expect for others to do today.. i have one SIL that comes to visit and if he isnt eating or cooking he is on the phone doing games or reading and what ever but he isnt walking or working or just puttering on something outside.. when i was a kid growing up the new fad was to raise kids like Dr. Spock said to do and a lot of folks did.. mine didnt it was old school and that is why i am the way i am today.. in my kid raising time, i did the way i saw and made some changes that i felt necessary.. and now they are in the drivers seat and they both do it differently than i did, and one is completely different from the other so as i see the world today is that tomorrow is going to be a completely differnt society than what we had rob. just one simple example is that in my area you cant find school kids that want to work during the summer months, a few will mow grass but not any hard work, i found one neighborhood boy age 14 that would work some and his dad was my friend and was raised the same as me.. so i am going to just trod along and do it myself and if i cant then it wont get done. i dont know how they younger ones can think that this money tree that mom and dad have provided for previous years is going to keep them going at the young adult years..???
If in Doubt, Build it Stout!
One hand washes the other!
Don't put off today till tomorrow!
