Some of the elements of the '60s -- the Pill, the astounding prosperity, the wide spread of drugs -- may have overwhelmed even a generation of good parents.

Members of the Greatest Generation often were very poor parents. Reacting to what they themselves did not have and ignoring the character and discipline that their deprivation taught them, they spoiled the Boomers.

If you equate money with happiness, you are on the slippery slope ... even if propelled by good intentions. Money can buy fun, not happiness.

And that's where we are today.
