The kids start guilt tripping the parents about all of their failings being due to the bad way they were raised. The parents fall for it and start enabling the kids. Once that habit is established, the parents can't seem to find a way out and do such things as cashing out their retirement accounts to pay to get their kids out of yet another fix.
It seems that rehab services for enablers is needed just as bad as for addicts.
I'm trying to see things from your point of view, but I can't get my head that far up my keister!
