    No.  Everyone will have a difficult time in the world.  Our family is the one place where we should be able to find shelter.

    I think this is circumstantial.  In some cases, yes.

    Even though 18 is considered adult, I think it is very young to get the world figured out.  And as Daffy Duck says, "family is the one place where we should be able to find shelter."

    But there would be ground rules, they would have to be a contributing member of the family and not freeloading.

    No. I prefer my children will stay with me until they get married.

    I think it is appropriate to give them an option to learn a skill that could support them. Let them know they have a certain amount of time to complete the program. If they fail to follow through , they will be directed to find a job and an apartment. If they choose not to go to college or trade school, then its off to work and finding their own place. That makes them grow up faster.

    No, though some kids of that age may be ready I would venture that most are not.  That aside, in the current economy it is hard for two-income families to get by much less and 18 year-old with a likely low-paying job.  I sure wouldn't kick my kids out at that age.  I was out from under my parents roof at 18 but I lived with my 22 year old brother.  I would have been screwed without him!
