Delightful insights!

Here's a different perspective: Sons across the world leave home to get married. Every son then reaches a moment when has to choose to do something his mother wants at the expense of time with his spouse or the disapproval of his spouse. In most cultures, it's the young person's responsibility to individuate - choose their own path. It is the son who chooses to initiate the "cutting of the cord". After the son initiates, the mother can react to the son's choice, and make the transition easy or hard, but it is the son who makes the choice. Just because some Mexican mothers make the choice difficult, like the Jewish mothers (of nebbishes), doesn't relieve the Jewish or Mexican sons from choosing. I understand that Mazbook implies that Mexican sons are not responsible for their actions and choices? Modern society seems eager to approve of adult "children" blaming their parents for many many things. Is this another example of modern society blaming the parent ???
