My kids have chosen to work and have their own places and have their own money... Including the ones that weren't biologically or legally mine but were my kids all the same. Have one now that was in foster care, group homes and the like. She came here as her grandparents took her in on foster. As soon as she graduated high school, they basically kicked her out and were going to send her back to her father who was the source of the trouble. One that definitely brings about desire for vigilante justice, he did things to her that are completely unacceptable. It is taking a lot to undo what he did.. And my step daughter is also a similar story, what her natural father did is absolutely unacceptable. Social services essentially just let him go without charges but he did all of a sudden give up all rights... But still I apparently got through to her enough that she has made some mistakes but is getting straightened around and standing on her own in her own place. Obviously thought enough of me to choose to take my name when she turned 18...

Then much like the story, I know another guy that I used to call friend that his parents coddled him so much that he is socially inept, as well as a permanent leech. He only lives on his own now because he was forced out of my home once enough was enough. I tried to help, but some just can't be.

That's great....about your kids....just as in the bad breeds, you have brought up kids that will then teach their kids what you taught them and are generational blessings (opposite of curses).

Best reply so far (and + reps for it), it focuses on what matters most, personal responsibility, rather than entitlement minded milltards (frequently displaying their own generational version of ADD while communicating) constantly blaming those before them, the enablers/parents/society, etc, (remember, they freely took the bait) for their situation. It's a rough world out there, get up on the morning and do something to make things better, and not just for oneself but for those around you.
