Before the bridge Robert Sheridan bobsheridan Maybe it has something to do with being taken care of as a kid, having limited responsibilities, 'n all, way back then.

After you grow up, you take the weight of the world on your shoulders, taking care of your own kids and other people's problems.

A guy who's book I read has a cartoon of the kids sleeping in the back seat of the family car coming home late from a Sunday Drive, probably from Jersey, with the parents up front driving. This was his idea of complete nirvana, sleeping in the back while Dad drove with Mom up front, bringing you home. His point was that some of us try inappropriately to recreate this feeling of dependence by subordinating ourselves to cult-like organizations which may turn out to be abusive.
