At 20 it is difficult if they do not already have it. 10 years from now that may all change, though!

Too late

They might figure it out in their 50s though

I have dealt with a couple of relatives, all sorts of "values" -- they will not learn until they are ready. One is in jail now (as a minor ) the other is finally coming around ( at 28). It is a lengthy process and not one filled with a sense of accomplishment but it is a job that needs to be done. Perservere -- for the sake of all of us. Be the only stable influence in their lives.

If he is living with you and you are paying his bills, make him do chores or what ever you need. If t do them you feed him, don't do his laundry make him do everything for himself. Then explain to him that when he learns to be grateful what he has and you do and have done for him. Maybe he will understand.

is he willing to listen?
it might just take explaining it to him.

but he needs a few harsh realities he probably missed along the way to help understand.

1 The world owes you nothing , I don't care who you are or how bad you have it the world owes you nothing

if approach things with the idea that the world , society ect , owes you any thing or is in any way indebted to you , you will never understand gratitude.

2. there is NO free Lunch , everything costs some body something

if you are not paying you are the product or the beneficiary of charity

if you aren't grateful for charity , you will soon loose the charity.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Its not too late.Actually between 20 and 23 is about normal when boys start to figure out the real world these days.Figured things out much younger than that when I was growing up.Keep them off the drugs is a biggy these days.Good luck Hobbie.Don't give up.

With a pipe wrench. Beat him about the shoulders and buttocks for a few minutes and he will be grateful when you stop.

i'm blessed.

23 yr old is a Staff Seargent in Minot.

and my 20 yr old is doing 14-12 hr day building well locations in W.Virginia.

i certainly do see a lot of what you speak of though and feel sorry for them as usually it isn't their fault.
