The Entitlement Gap

Here is an excellent article that showed up recently in the Wall Street Journal. It's all about how the word "adult" has gone from a noun to a verb. As a person who sees the English language as a fluid animal, I don't necessarily hate the "verbing" of that word, but I do despise the laziness that comes from behind it. Sadly, this word envelopes the whole first five to six years of students whom I have taught, so please don't let your kids become a part of it too--for your own sake!

Here's hoping your kids will prove that the Millennials were just an aberration.
