Do you think that at 18 kids should get an automatic 'boot to the butt' out?
If you all remember, my son leaves for college in a couple weeks and my oldest has already moved out. They were both over the age of 18 before they moved out.
I have a high school friend who I recently reconnected with who has 17 yr old twins. They just graduated from high school in May. They will be 18 in October.
She is literally counting down the days until their 18th birthday so she can give them a 'boot to the butt' out. She isn't a bad parent from what I can see and her girls adore her, but she has very set ideas about her role as a parent and she believes that at 18 children should leave home and make their own way in this world. It happened to her and she raised her girls this way.
I am not saying that it is right or wrong, just wondering if anyone else believes this way too.
When did your kids leave home and under what circumstances ie college, their own wil, booted out etc...
