Max sat around his parents' house for months before flying to Israel even as my sister said, "Why don't you get a job? It wouldn't hurt you to have some more money in pocket when you get there."
But in Tel Aviv, he got himself a bartending gig (acces to "tons of chicks" he told me recently) and had to do things like take care of paperwork when it turned out he had slightly the wrong work permit. That kind of thing would have had him running desperately for mom if he'd been back in the States.
