I used to lead educational tours in the EU for North American students and frequently observed this with US kids, James.

As a result, they all acted far younger than their EU peers and needed a lot of mollycoddling, which isn’t the European way.

In some cases, I was a little too pragmatic for their liking, encouraging them to be resourceful rather than, well, do everything for them.
