  • Depends on how well we're getting along! If it's going good, 20. If not, 18 or 19. And, if they're in college, I'll give them more time :)

  • Well, I suppose it depends on how the economy is then. If he can easily get a job and find a place after college, then once he has his degree and job. However if he chooses to work instead of college, (assuming that it is still just he and I then) he will be offered the chance to be my 'roommate' and split the bills half and half for a while until he saves up enough to have his own place. I can't really give a concrete answer.

  • Forever!! I dont even want to think of them growing up and not needing me anymore. They are 4, 2 and Fetus :)

  • It depends. If they are in college and need help, I may let them continue to live at home. I have no clue. I just know that anywhere close to 30 is WAY too old!

  • I think it would depend on the situation. If she is lazy and doing nothing with her life at 20 - then its time to go out into the real world. But if she is a full time student with a lot of things going on in her life... I would cut her some slack. But honestly, I dont think I could kick my child out.

  • My kids are 11, 8 and 6 and I have been repeating myself since they were old enough to understand sentences. My children are welcome to stay in my home as long as they are in school. If they decide to go to college I want them to not be burdened with the costly prices of rent (Lord only knows how much it will be in 7 yrs) I didn't go to college because I moved out and had to start working to pay for rent and a I finally started going to college after my 3rd child was born....I want my kids to be able to walk out of my home shielded with a degree and a plan.

  • I will never kick my kids out. They can live at home as long as they like. I don't mind helping my kids out or having them live at home. Sometimes that is the best place for them to achieve whatever goals they are attaining too. When they are ready to leave they can leave, and if they can't make it out there, they can always come home. Their room will always be waiting for them.
