They had this figured out back a coupla centuries ago:

"Spare the rod and spoil the child." <-- for physically grown, immature children the "rod" is NO MORE FREE RIDE. <-- It shoulda been that two decades ago, but it is most ricky-tick not too late.

Not acting like a responisble parent at this juncture could fuck up a LOT of lives.

Being a responsible parent at this time will NOT fuck up a lot of lives.

I agree with what Avalon and WillA2 said. To many people are friends with their kids. Its a nice idea but it doesn't work when things go south. Let them make their own decisions.

There is a saying: Good experience come from bad experience. My sons learned all about bad experience. My wife gave me hell but they both came to me and thanked me for the lesson learned. Sometimes you have let them get burned. Mine did.
