To make things better

I've often heard it proclaimed by parents that they want to make their children's lives better. By improving technology or by sending them to college or whatever. And we can, if we examine our society, see that since the end of World War II succeeding generations have had an easier life. Indoor plumbing and power are available in nearly all parts of the country, education (such as it is) is available to many more people and the poverty level is much lower.

However I was pondering this morning, the point at which we as the older generation, make life so simple for the next generation that we accidentally remove this desire or the ability to act on it.
