He has to butt out and let them learn the hard way or they will always be looked at like they have silver spoons in their mouths. We can't fault the kids for being born into a "rich" family but they can't expect loyalty for the money alone. The day I see grease under their finger nails is when they earn respect from me.
I agree. When they first came in and were doing well, I respected that. Now they seem to be spoiled and a little arrogant. I've heard some of the radio conversations between gramps and the boys and he's constantly telling them what to do. That, to me, says that maybe their "inherent talent" isn't so inherent. Unfortunately, they will never have to "sink or swim". Grandpa will make sure they always have rides as long as they want them.
while it is true they didnt have to earn their cushy rides, they do have talent & have done better than say Menard when he came in & knew he would always have a ride. So I get both sides of the debate. As far as attitude, I have more hope for Ty than I do Austin.
