Mensagem: 

I think there´s plenty of definitions and word to this one.

Examples: 

 

Work-shy
Indolent

Lazy        "I've gotten lazy on a steady paycheck (Laughing Boy; writing
 credit: Brazil Joseph Grisaffi III; George Douglas Lee)"

Lazy-bones

 

 

In the book Successful parenting the authors call KWASOMS (Kids Without Any Self-Discipline or motivation)  "these kids are given everything by their parents and accomplish little on their own".

 

 

Somebody that doesn´t like pushing himself, hence doesn´t achieve much.  This way doesn´t have a sense of satisfaction and  fulfillment that nothing else does.

Someone that lean on their parents and takes everything for granted (this can change with time...visit this site to see how):

    This doesn´t exhaust the subject, it´s a preliminary comment, more may come from others participants.

 

 

     PP.
