    Is it true when a son grows up, he goes away from his parents emotionally. When a girl grows up, she comes closer to her parents emotionally

    I do not agree that a son goes away from his parents emotionally.  In fact it could be the other way round.  A lot depends on his/her childhood experiences with her/his parents.  If parents have developed a good rapport with their childen in their growing years, children will always be close.  It does not matter whether they are sons or daughters.

    I really think that it depends on the person. My brother and I are very close to our parents emotionally and we are both in our forties now. There is a saying that my Gran used to say, but I don't personally think that there is any truth in it :

    A son's a son 'til he takes a wife,
    A daughter's a daughter for all of your life.

    There seems to be a separation that occurs during the teen years regardless of gender.  I believe it is the person's way of pulling away so that they can begin to live their own life as an adult.  Hopefully as this happens they will stay emotionally close to their mom and dad.  It is a fine balance for everyone.

    I have two boys and two girls, all adults now and with families of their own. Of course they are emancipated and at least one of them (a son) lives too far for us to get together more often than once a year, still we phone each other often, and we talk of FB. The other three kids are in constant contact with me and we have a big family reunion in my house every other Sunday (wife, husbands and grandkids included). So I would have to say that at least in my case it isn't true that a son's a son 'til he takes a wife, and a daughter's a daughter for all your life. I guess I am very blessed.
