Parents are ‘too supportive’ of their lazy, idle, good-for-nothing graduate offspring
The Department of Business, Innovation and Skill (BIS) has issued a guide to tackle the culture of student dependence I referred to in the previous post, which, let’s be frank, is a consequence of government policies such as the abolition of student grants.
The guide is directed at parents who find themselves with their unemployed, graduate off-spring living at home and generally refusing to fulfil his or her entrepreneurial duties.
The BBC reports that the Department of BIS ‘warns parents against being “too supportive,” saying newly-qualified offspring should be encourage to be realistic, rather than wasting away the years pursuing their dream job.
‘The guide also advises against allowing a few weeks back home to turn into a few months. Its solution is to show some “tough love” by not doing their washing and ironing.’
That’ll show the blighters!
