At what point should your child move out of the home? And is there a certain age they should move?
It depends on the child and what is needed to get them to accept responsibility in knowing it is real-world out there. Some young people need to nudged out of the nest and some you just can't nug them out. My youngest son walked out when he was 16 my oldest I led him to the door when he was 19 both of them could not come to the understanding there were household bills that need to met so I felt it was time for them to have their own. It was hard but they both came back and thank me for letting them go. You GOT to know your child and you must know are YOU ready to let go and let them grow up.
when they are ready.... i think mine will be mid twenties- with high college fees and housing costs they will stay here until they can afford a place of their own.
let your child decide. Here Europe, there is no age limit when they should move out of their parents house. They just move when they want too that is if they have a proper job.
I'm no parent, but I was on my own at a fairly young age not by choice, but I had to do what I had to do. For parents, I believe from the time that children can walk and do various things. They should be given responsibilities around the home so that as they grow older they become independent instead of dependent on others. More than likely they will take the initiative to go out on their own as they become older wanting and needing to grow as an adult in addition to accomplish things that interest them. I really don't think their is an age but as they grow they will know as well as the parent will also know and feel comfortable in knowing that they are capable of fending for themselves, and if not you are there for them in times of need.

I believe a year after high school is sufficient.
Anything longer than that, mixed messages are sent
My parents will float me forever if I wanted..
Why move? I pay almost nothing here..
Children will stay, especially if you have no rules or regulation to follow and they have no goals beyond working fast food.
Mom’s need to push the baby bird out of the nest. If they do not push, they are just prolonging “shelter” and security that needs to be learned independently.
One exception though, If the child has finished high school and attends a local college, I believe a parent should allow the child to stay until their education is complete.

It depends on the child if they are ready to make that next step. The home situations are both parents working? How much will they benefit from a social life being with other children?

Do you believe that children do as we say do or do as we do?

Do you know if you have to be a certain age (ie. 18+) to publish a novel in the UK?I'm writing a novel at the moment and my ultimate goal, as is for every aspiring novelist, is to get it published, but the only thing is I'm not 18 yet. Would that matter?
