While I was waiting my turn in a beauty salon, several mothers struck up an interesting conversation. They were debating how far parents should go to help their children.
Their kids never did anything for themselves, they said, and it's getting worse as they get older.
It's so bad, one woman said, that her son refuses to fill out his own college application. She has to do it for him.
"I don't know where he would be without me," she said, "because he won't do anything for himself."
