Our issue with boomers comes from the failure to share resources - and the narcissistic belief we’ve seen repeated over and over again that they’re the only ones who’ve ever done it hard. We’re raising four kids in a time where there’s no rental housing and we can’t afford to buy a house. The boomers in our lives have property and assets and won’t give us the hand up we need because apparently we don’t know what tough is. Not just our story - we’ve heard this same story from many many others now too. Something is wrong with a large portion of that generation who think it’s all and only really about them. They’ve forgotten - or were never taught - the appropriate social obligations. And that is a generational issue plan and simple.
