    I know some parents whose attitude is "When my kids turn 18, that's their problem, they're on their own", which is really tough in an economic system that not only makes college unaffordable for most families, but isn't creating enough opportunities for people fresh out of school with degrees.

      That's exactly why societies like India and China are going to eat our lunch if we don't turn that attitude around. They help their kids out way into adulthood.

      Thinking that 18-year-olds are on their own is horrific when college is this expensive. Geez, if people hate their kids that much, I wonder why they had them in the first place.
