I'd say 21 at the earliest, earlier if they feel they're ready

I've always said 18 but really it's situation dependant.

I'd say she'd be prepared to live on her own by at least 16. She will have the skill set to survive. Now honestly, I would like her to stay home until she is done with college.

Maybe 25 at the latezt, 18 at the youngest?


Id prefer her to live at home during college to save money but its really up to her.

18, when she goes to college. I would like her to be able to be away from home before that...I'm hoping to be able to let her have some time abroad in high school.
