When they are aware that one of the main parenting jobs is to teach kids to rely on them less and less, they don't know how to do it.

Never make promises you can or will not fulfill! Don't say something like "I smack you to right into the middle of next week if you do that again!" ... and when the kid does do it again, - you don't do it! Yes instead you will promise to kill him next time and so on and so on.

These are real torrowbreads you would producing!

Well on the other hand somebody has to fill the jails also in the future!
Twentyfive percent out of nothing is still nothing!

Throw kids in real life working environment during holiday period without single cent support. one option.

Most of first generation tycoon growth up by supporting poor family. They learned in real life and they're most independent.
