Millennial dads have pathetic DIY skills

I have a (ex) SIL who can do almost anything and do it well. Stuff breaks, it gets fixed. Don't like the house, remodel. Want fine old iron, buy a 60's car and restore it.

His son, my grandson, has no interest. I've tied to sell the idea that he can acquire skills that he'll be happy to have later in life. Talking to a brick wall.

Maybe I'm just a doddering old fool. Hmmmmn, will have to check back in thirty years.
