Who's responsibility is it to become self-sufficient?

My father never went out of his way to 

explain how to pay bills. I asked him, 

and he said: you should have learned 

those things at school. Well, they didn't 

hold classes on that. I still don't know 

how to pick a career on my own. 

I thought parents are supposed to 

explain how to do that. Advice Please.

    Your father failed you. Probably more ways than one (like mine). How to find a career? Do you have any interests? What do you like to do? After high school, I hadn't a clue. I tried restaurants, machine shops, food processing plants. Then, I was drafted & trained to do analyzing routine tasks. After that, I worked for the government & earned some college degrees and became an administrator. If you're in a dead end, look for something else while you're employed.

    We don't live in the paleolithic anymore. NOBODY is self-sufficient.

    Capitalism never provides a job with a living wage for everybody. If "too few" people are unemployed, wages spiral up

    The adult. An adult takes responsibility for themselves, not blame others.

    Try YouTube. If your dad never showed you how to put new line on the weed trimmer someone has made a great YouTube video on that.

    It's your responsibility to become self-sufficient. That's literally what it means.If your parents and your school doesn't teach you, it is your responsibility to learn on your own.
