My two nieces recently came to live with me as their parents were ill equipped to help them get started in life (massive understatement, but that's another story). I love them and they are good kids, but I am shocked by their lack of self-sufficiency and decisiveness. I suppose that every new generation seems that way to the older one, but with this being my first direct exposure to it, the disparity is startling.
