A family analogy yes, but in this case you picked your parents!

Best way to teach kids is to let them figure it out on their own and fix their own problems. No hand holding in this family. Lol

My parents have been ok but my god parents have been very questionable. I think they stole my trust fund.

The issue seems to be that "they" don't make anything that lasts anymore. The real reason is that we want bigger / better for less. We won't pay for more; so less is a sure thing. Why would a manufacturer want to go bankrupt making things of higher quality, if the product won't be bought ... it would have to cost him more to make ... which we know the buying public doesn't care about and won't pay for. We have met the enemy and he is us!
