18 to 34 Year Old "Men"

I recently read a frightening statistic that more men between the age of 18 and 34 play more video games than 12 to 17 year olds.  I think that they call this the Peter Pan Syndrome, where these "men" never grow up.  OK, guys, don't you think that it's time to man up?  You should be going to college, working, at some point getting married and supporting a family. Isn't the number of single family households where the mother is raising the family staggering?

I am aware of family after family where the son has come back home to live so, Mom and Dad can help "Johnny" get back on his feet.  Actually, Johnny was never able to stand on his two feet since Mom and Dad were enablers from the start.    These men need to take control of their lives, but first Mom and Dad need to give them a swift kick in the rear end.  These men need to turn off the TV, put down the game controller, wake up before noon, start to network with responsible adults as Mom and Dad may not qualify, go to college (community college is a great opportunity), get to work (yes, you may have to start in an entry level position so, you can demonstrate that you have what it takes), but most importantly, begin to take some responsibility.
