My girls, 13 and 14, have been talking a lot lately about how when they move out, they want to do... or they're going to have... Anyway, it made me think about when I moved out at 18. I was definitely NOT ready, but at the same time I really wanted to be out on my own, and it all worked out for the best in the end.
How old were you when you moved out on your own? Were you ready? Did you ever have to move back home for any reason afterwards?
