I guess I must be in the minority here because I don't expect our daughters to leave as soon as they turn 18. Our oldest will be a senior in high school and I would rather her not move out in the middle of the year. We have several good colleges in driving distance and if she chooses one of those she is welcome to stay at home through college. (Which will only be a couple of years since she will have two years of concurrent enrollment in high school). I can see our younger daughter being ready to leave the nest on her birthday, and if she chooses to do so that's ok (she will have completed her senior year a month before her birthday). While I don't want to tether my children to me, I also don't want to throw them out before they are ready.
