bighairymike: "My son on the other hand just wants to coast through life, with little or no responsibility, still acting like a perpetual college student but without any classes to interfere with partying. He could and did hold down a good job and simply decided not to work. It is that lack of a work ethic that I don't feel good about enabling."

If he is paying his bills and not hitting up family and friends for money, why does it bother you so much?

Do think the same about people who retire early?

Using an obvious TMF example, do you believe that intercst and his apparent lack of traditional work ethic is problematic?

If not what is the difference?
