should we start working when we complete 18 years
22 Jul 07
It depends where you are, and whether your parents permit you to be living independently or not. I guess for Americans, that practice is common. But for us Filipinos, that is indeed rare. Maybe there are a few parents who may allow such arrangement, but for my case, I don't..I mean when my children were 18 years old, they were still in college, and naturally, we gave our full support to them. Now that both of them are already adults (25 and 22 respectively), they are still living with us, both are still single, and I am happy they are still with us...until further notice of course...I'm sure they will soon leave when they get married. But as of now, they are still very much under our care, and I'm happy to, as long as my two kids like to....
