Living our lives together as a family, consists of so much! I am a woman who has a belief system, you don’t have to move out of the family home once you turn 18 or graduate from school. I understand independence, but when the time is right. Age should not dictate, “when a person is ready” to move out and start their lives.
Experience and Wisdom will allow the feeling of being comfortable to “want” to move out of the family home.
For our family, we have the belief that if you can all still live together and “want” to live together as a family, then why not! It does not stop anyone from growing “independently” or “having responsibility”, in fact it has created a stronger bond, one that our dreams in life are focused on.
We have provided options to our kids; if they want to stay with us, they can. If they want to live on their own, they can do that as well. Freedom of choice!
When you force your child to, “move out”, they are starting their independent life with fewer choices. The chances of them having a difficult time in life, providing for themselves (especially in today’s World) are going to be more of a struggle for them. You can help your child grow and gain their independence under the same roof. We are not living in the 1950’s, we need to adjust to the World we live in and support each other; creating new traditions.
I know everyone has their own opinion on this topic and all kids are different; but I’d like to believe in order for our children to succeed in life, they need to venture out when they are ready and not by being forced out the door.
Everything we do in life, from living together, loving each other, supporting each other, and caring for each other, needs to be done without pressure – the World is a different place today, but we can still live in Peace.
