Not entirely true. They fund much of his lifestyle and he leans on them a lot.
They could manage him better and have a greater say but they appear to be enablers more than anything.
If someone raises a spoiled child, who is responsible when they continue to act as they were raised as they become adults??
And how do you teach them to be responsible and learn the lessons many of us did as children when the stakes weren't so high?
He definitely need to stop being a 20 year old kid and grow up, but I don't think he knows how and his parents and friends who would normally be the ones offering guidance are certainly not helping.
