    ...But do Millennials respond to these economic troubles by putting their nose to the grindstone and doing whatever it takes to make ends meet? Hardly. In fact, of the four generations Pew Research has data for, the Millennial generation does not cite work ethic as distinctive of itself. One in eight return to live in their parents’ homes. Millennials want to save the world, but they sit and wait for that world-changing opportunity to be handed to them. They find no satisfaction in the mundane. Instead of working 2-3 jobs, launching a business, or doing what it takes to succeed, they retreat. Millennials may be the first generation to have a lower standard of living than their parents, but with this response to adversity, perhaps deservingly so.

    My generation and late born baby boomers parented many of the Millennials. Doesn't say much for the "Busters" and "Boomers" generations either. We bear the blame for not teaching and, more importantly, emulating a good work ethic.

    Many of us spend to much time trying to give our children more and better advantages than we had. You know, more into their academics, college, sports and so on and less time into their spiritual needs. Yes many of us did a poor job.
