Attention, All Adults: It's Time to Grow Up

September 01, 2000

Whatever happened to adults ("Someone to Help Resolve All Your 'Issues,' " Aug. 8)? This is rapidly and frighteningly becoming a nation of very tall children in an increasingly dumbed-down victim culture. Grown men and women hide behind children's alibis: "I forgot"; "I couldn't help it"; "The dog ate my maturity." Remember adults? They made their own decisions (and dealt with the consequences), not to mention handled their own mistakes. Now, it seems "life coaches" are needed to take up where Mommy left off. In other words, if you don't feel like being a grown-up, hire someone to be a grown-up for you.
