At what age did your mom and dad stop treating you like a little kid?

I'm 39 and although in some respects they have treated me as an adult since I was little (in terms of taking responsibility for myself and my actions), I still to this day get treated as a kid sometimes by my parents.

Being self reliant is a trait that I am teaching my daughter as well, Urbangirl. For awhile I was concerned that I might be putting too much pressure on her, but it's so vitally important that a woman be able to support herself and depend upon her own resources once she gets out into the world. But, in many ways, she is still my little baby and always will be. I can never imagine the day that I will completely cut ties with her and let her go. It's just not going to happen.

I can't imagine anyone's parents ever let go of the heart strings that bind you to them. How can they?
