Are young adults over-protected?

A college senior reports five years after entering CSUC: Almost all the kids that age (first entering college) here at CSU Chico that I’ve met (and those a few years in) have never held a job, never tried for one, and do not have even the most basic skill set for taking fundamental care for themselves and their living situation. And mind you, I’m absolutely not judging, I’m just amazed and horrified because they deserve to have been better prepared for life than that.  I think it is/was the “helicopter parents,” as you described them; protecting them rather than preparing them for life, during their adolescence.
