16 frames per second is said to be the minimal amount of stills rapidly shown for us humans to perceive it as 'moving images'. Our consciousness is such a lame thing chuckle.gif

I guess they also feel, why should we suffer when the preceeding generations screwed things up for the generations to follow. They don't want to give any conveniences up. I find alot of them somewhat lazy (can't find another word for it) or have a 'I give up' attitude.

My 22 yr old son finally landed a job for a low wage only due my non-stop badgering and, yes, my husband and I are working middle classers keeping food on the table and a roof over everyone's heads and we intend to keep working part-time during retirement, if we are able, so we can splurge on our bucket lists. When I question him about his views on the state of the world, environment, and future his reply that it's f*d, so what does it matter?, is disturbing, although he is justified. My son has no intentions of moving out and now he is saving up for skydiving lessons.

My 19 year old daughter has no gumption for her future. Again, due my non-stop badgering I finally got her to volunteer. At least it is a contribution to society in my mind, but she is only doing it to gain skills that may get her a low paying job, which translates into the fact that she won't be able to move out on her own either. I want her to get a higher education for a good paying healthcare job so she can be self-sufficient, but she is just dragging her feet on that as well.

Both my adult children informed me that they will not be bringing children into this world. Not that I have asked them for grandchildren, but it's all very sad to see one's children not look positively to the future of the Earth and mankind.

That is sad. Our kids are approximately the same age but on different sides of the world I guess. Not that it matters, kids will be kids no matter. They stop talking to you for a while before they realize you were right all along lmao.gif

ah,,, now i have the age of the kidsyay.gif

This age is the transitional point in current western culture. ( Culture to be explained later)

as this: they are old enough to feel independence

yet unsure of the way it works

shït,,, everyone was there at that age.

where to now?
what do i do?
How do i do it?

where's the owners guide to my life ?yay.gif

stages of life, as with any change, comes with a feeling of uncertainty

it can actually STOP forward thinking for awhile.


Add in current break down of structured societal means

and the cluster suck is not a happy mode.


no problem

adaptation will come,,, something in our makeup, we always adapt,,,given time to adjust.


with the boy
lead,,, he'll follow

a TRADE
whether carving clay, bailing hay, or manufacturing little wheels for midgets wheelchairs

his aptitude will denote what trade he is best happy with learning and applying in life.

find that
then direct him to where he can find an instructor for it.

same with the girl
find what she likes for a career,,,

then you guide to that venue for the education.

That may handle the financial support system of life

for the rest,,

influences are factored in,,
find out what has influenced their perceptions

weed out the bad through explaining to them

garnish the good, and enhance the base of them by actualizing these with them.
not for them
but with them,

head start, push,,ease them into the world out there

Are your kids still living with you UniqueStranger? Mine aren't and I'd say kicking them off the branch doesn't make you a bad person.

Now let's have some beer. drinking.gif
