Raising Adults

I found Katz's "YPs: A Failure of Culture" to be insightful commentary on what's wrong with the young people (YP) of today. We, the Western society, have idealized the carefreeness of youth rather than the wisdom of the ages. I guess the challenge for the home educating parents (at least for yours truly) is to raise our children to take responsibility seriously and for us parents to allow them the chance to fail.
