Yep, it sucks to move away from family.
Actually, that's not what I meant. And I'm also not talking about Metro's "Gimmee" attitude.
I'm talking about kids just out of high school who stay in a dead-end town because a parent is helpless and crippled. Situations like that. Not a case of "I don't want to leave here because I'm scared of the world." This is a case of trapped. Stuck. Waiting for a parent to get well or get worse so that a nursing home is needed.
There are plenty of people who are stuck in bad situations. I suppose your response is going to be that the government should take care of the parent so the child can leave and go to the big city and get a better job.
Or perhaps that they should walk out the door and leave a parent to die.
Perfectly expectable responses from both of you.
