If it's so

Jacob came over last night, and expressed his feelings about how we are managing his brother Jack. In particular, he expressed his opinion about our selfish behavior.
I sat with that for a few minutes, ready to explode, though, as he explained, that because we get Jack up for school, or work, and make things possible and easier for him, yet we are expecting him to be able to manage all of that by himself next year at college, with little or no practice, we are doing that for ourselves, not helping him to learn how to conduct his own life.
