When I say "support" I mean, standing behind them, still providing for them even though they refused?
One thing I am a strong believer in is finishing high at the least. College is up to them. I would encourage my kids to finish, however if they refused, I would not support them. They would be free to move out.

Nope. My 21yo dropped out the day after he turned 18 but he didn't live with us at the time (he moved out the day he turned 18). He wanted to be a grown up. He now has his GED & is now in college and he realized that quitting school (he was a good student, he just happened to have a gf who had a son from a previous relationship and her mom talked him in to quitting school to get a job to provide for her daughter and for her whole family) was not a smart idea. We did not give him money and he lost his car (pink slip is ours until they graduate from high school and the stipulation is that they have to live with us until they graduate AND graduate) the day he moved out. Graduating from high school is a must in this house and attending college is strongly supported (1 has, 1 is and 2 will).
