These are not the days of the Good Ole Days when the kids leave the nest and go off and learn to be responsible and work for what they have instead of mommy and daddy still paying their bills and keeping them up. What will be of these adults in society when the parents are no longer able or living to keep doing so?

If the parents allow it the kids will continue to take advantage of it. My stepmom is still paying her 35 yr old son phone insurance food and day to day things he wants and her and my dad cant save for their retirement. He has a good job and own place and extra money for these things but dont want to pay for it since she pays for everything. Brag all the time that he still momma boy and can get his way with her and what he want. He is getting worse managing his money bc of this know momma going to foot the bill for whatever it is he comes to need.

My parents do the same for my older sister and her boufriend. They rarely do anything for me and my boyfriend and he works hard having 2 jobs and not waste money and we try hard to not ask even on something big and we would pay them back unlike my sister and him. So we put on credit and have to pay high interest untill we get it payed back down.

She has a baby btw and i do not. But his parents buy alot for the baby and even pays some bills and buy them things and he is their only child. He has good job also but a tightwad so he wants someone else to pay for things he can pay. I guess my parents are trying to keep up with his parents and it leaves me out because they spend so much on them. :'(

Have a baby! My sister had one and they are all about them & don't have much with me anymore. My sister and I live only blocks away and mother will go to her house 20 times a week and not visit me but once every couple months. I feel like I don't exist anymore.

Most grandparents try to keep up with the other grandparents. Leaves the kid spoiled and the kids parents relying on them for everything down the road.

People only do what they are allowed to do. These parents are enablers. Plain and simple.

Look at the lil boy play farmers who couldnt make it without dad, or their family owns a freakn tractor store and they work there. These punks could do nothing on their own without their daddy. I personally would be humiliated as a so called man. Make your own way. Then they act like how geat they are, good thing for mom and dad. They would be working at wal mart.

Who the hell are you to judge? At least they ARE working. They could be get out alone with low income and draw off the government instead of "mom and dad". I guess that's what you'd like, more tax dollars. First of all you just because you had to struggle at a young age doesn't mean everyone does. Getting out and getting a job straight out of high school and staying there, is basically setting you up for failure if you devote yourself to a peice of shi- job that requires no education or skills. Sometimes these college kids and just finishing up their degrees, for all you know. Probably already gone further with their own education then you ever have as a blue collar worker. You're probably someone who got someone knocked up right out of high school, was forced to get a job to provide, and had no spare time to better yourself. Don't take it out on everyone else, YOU made the decisions in life you chose.

Not everyone who has a child right out of high school or in high school is set up to live a miserable life with a bad job. Some people do work their butts off and make good money and finish college. Your stereotype is just as bad as saying because you work for your parents business you are a loser because you never got out on your own. Everyone has the opportunity to make their life whatever they choose and it's nobody else's fault but their own if they choose not to make something of themselves.

Actually I'm working towards my degree in Chemistry and I don't work for my family's business, although I have the option. I've worked stores, restaurants, and at Tenaris; all the while getting my education. Just because someone has the OPTION to work for their parents doesn't mean you should bash them that's just dumb. Not everyone wants to take out thousands of dollars in loans just to go an stay at a University. Some people choose simply to commute and work while they earn their degree, while saving money on rent by living with a parent. Also, why the hell would someone rather work at a temporary job making minimum wage or hardly better, instead of working and helping your family and make more money doing so.

why does your dad allow this? you need to be thinking ahead and talk to your dad about his will. It's obvious to me that your step-brother will everything of your dad's
