Growing Up Circa 2015

Dear Short Answers:
My son recently turned 26 and must now get his own health insurance.  From what I understand, this is not difficult and not expensive under Obamacare.  But his philosophy is since he doesn’t own anything, they can’t force him to pay and he’ll get free care if anything happens.  He’s probably right about that but how do I convince him that having health insurance is an important part of being an adult and something you should not live without?  I could go ahead and buy it for him but I think this should be his responsibility.

Dear Pops:
Some Millennials see the responsibilities of adulthood as a multiple choice exercise.  Part of having ‘adult’ children is letting them choose.
