So much of this is so true, especially the part about today's 18 year olds

not being as ready to go away to college, as a result of the helicopter parenting & seeing what they see all day on their phones. These kids have so many hang-ups----the myriad things that "trigger" them, their need to hide out in "safe spaces," their inability to deal with those whose political viewpoints differ from theirs & in fact their belief that they're entitled to silence those opposing views. Kids like this make up a large percentage of college students, and colleges are spending inordinate amounts of time having to coddle & counsel & indulge them. This article nails it.
