I think at the age of 30 a person should be able to cook and take care of themselves. I'm 50 yrs old and I don't depend on any one except for me. My son is 24 yrs. old and still lives at because he is an over the road truck driver. He comes home once ever 3 weeks for about 3 to 4 days. He does his own laundry and shares in the cooking responsibilities. I told him I could not see him paying for his own place when he's only home 3 to 4 days out of a month. So in that respect I don't consider him dependent.

Hi zhouxi, in India, parents tend to over pamper children, and therefore, children have no qualms in taking from elderly at whatever age. In general, however, there is a competition with friend, sibling, cousin, or rival, which prompts Indians to behave more responsibly. I am not dependent on my father. :)

No I am not. I think after a certain age we need to do things for our selves. We need to find a job and so on. besides that i don't like other people do my stuff. I like to do my stuff on my own. Good post.
