    Ha, and at 30, hearing "Youth is a time for action!" from the marine dad, I think he was probably right. I squandered much of mine.
    It should also be a parent's duty to give the child a sense of direction. Some good role-modeling would also help. My ISFJ father wasn't a marine in any sense - he was 4f - but he was all about putting on a false front for society just like they were in the cartoon. He knew everything about what society expected to see from a family, but he knew exactly nothing about his family's needs, wants, and desires. And so, for example, he would commonly give money as a gift at holidays, which is okay of course, but it indicated that he didn't want to put any thought into a gift. This got him in trouble one time, when he gave a girlfriend of his (post-divorce) money for her birthday. This made her feel like a whore. He didn't understand that. He thought money was a catch-all solution to the problem of gift-giving. So his people-pleasing methodology didn't always work out. Both of my parents were too aloof. And in the cartoon, both parents were too busy tending to their own needs, either the mother's mental illness or the father being away from home most of the time working two jobs so he could avoid the craziness of his home life.
