When I was growing up I mowed the lawn, raked leaves, shoveled snow and did anything else that was needed. My 13 yearold son has one resposibility: Mow the back lawn on Sat afternoon. Getting him to do that is like pulling teeth. I drove around town this afternoon and I didn;t notice a single kid out working in his yard. When I was young I would see dozens.

Thanks Traci21. I think kids today don't have the responsibility we had. They have a sense of entitlement we would never have dreamed of.
billd01603...You're right but this isn't the world we grew up in and never will be again. I think we need to quit remembering the past and get ready for the future. I lived through 'the good old days' and they weren't so good.
