We are trying to encourage our daughter to move out on her own. We want to engage more into our "adult lifestyle" more and do it at home rather than at others homes and hotels. Any advice to push her along???Answer Question
I would set a time limit that you want her to have an apartment. Give her a date and help her look for apartments in her price range. Be upbeat about it and just explain that you are excited for her to move on to the next phase of her life and living at home isn't teaching her anything about the world.

If she were ready to be on her own she would move out on her own. It is very difficult to make it financially for young people, for everyone! You should not push your child out for your "adult lifestyle". I'm 54 and I was 18 in 1974. My parents were middle class and were swingers and had sex parties with drugs. I was the oldest and was forced out when I was 18 and my sister was forced out at 16 for their "adult lifestyle". My sister has had a horrible life because of their "adult lifestyle". My father died in his 50's because of their "adult lifestyle". My mother no longer thinks the "adult lifestyle" was worth the price she paid.
