age old question........and i'm at the fringe

i'd say as long as your in school, and making a contribution to your home you can stay...but once you graduate, and have the means to support yourself, you need to be let loose.

for me, it sucks to live at home in one sense.....but great for other reasons $$$

i guess i have UH to thank...since most UH'ers are commuters, they stay at home till graduation...which is pretty much what i did.

so now that i've graduated, the search for a nice townhouse/condo continues.

once i've gotten used to my territory, i can safely and more assuradle buy in an area i feel is best for me...

but in short, living at home has its $$ perks, but also sucks in another sense.

depends on the person. I've been living on my own since I was 19. Love it although it hasn't always been easy I certainly learned from it and wouldn't change a thing.

<----- Still living at home at 26. I pay for my own collage and flying lessons, though my parents divorce also gave me more reason to stay and help my mother. Guess it is a bit wimpy but Im real big into helping family whenever I can.

i plan on staying at home until i graduate. i'm paying my way through school and for all my other bills, so why tack on an extra expense like rent? plus, my parents are cool as and give me the freedom i need and also don't care how long i need to stay, so i'm not really sweatin' it. it would be cool to live on my own, but i'm satisfied with my current arrangement.

Once your out of school you should be out.
I put 19 but this all depends on the cercumstanse.
If a child is still in school, and not just f0king off. I say they can stay

I moved out at 18 when I joined the Army. I moved back in at 25 when my mom passed away to take care of my dad.
We were more like roommates than parent/child. He passed away when I was 28, been on my own since.

I think it depends on the situation; if you're in school, if you're helping your family, paying your own way.
However, IMO if you're older than 19-20 and are living at home, not going to school and not contributing to the household, than you're just sponging off of your parents because you're too afraid to go out on your own.

I put 19, but agree that if you are in college it's OK. Really it is different for every family and depends on the realtionship and respect betweend parent(s) and son/daughter. But if you stay past your 'development' period you should be making a significant financial contribution to the household or doing something similar with the $ that is agreed to by the parents, such as saving for a down payment on a house.

LIke every other person has said on here, it depends on the situation. If you are lucky enough to have parents that don't kick you out as soon as you turn 18, then stay until you are stable enough.
