This article has some very good points.  Regardless of your views on Occupy Wall Street, or even if his points are valid on the topic, the points made about the parenting mistakes of today’s generation are spot-on.  (in my humble opinion)

Occupy Wall Street is a temper tantrum in a private park. And it’s parents, moms and dads, i.e. us, who are to blame.

      I would highly disagree. Temper Tantrums do not solve anything, from children or adults. In Children it is expected behavior because they are still learning how to communicate, from Adults, it is just childish.

        Yeah, our founding fathers were such little babies, throwing their temper tantrums, and not following blindly like the loyalists (Revolutionary war era right-wingers).

        I’m pretty sure that the situations are founding fathers were dealing with of greater significance than this current tantrum.

        Most of the objectives I have heard about the OWS “movement” boils down to people being upset with their situation and that someone else is still being successful. They feel that those with money should just give it to them, but it is the prerogative of the individual/ institution/ business how they choose to spend their wealth. They can hire people, purchase goods and services, give to charity, invest it, or (heaven forbid) keep it.

        For the record, I, too, live paycheck to paycheck and am anything but living “comfortably”
