Is it a wise decision for parents to let their son/daughter to live independently after they reach the age of 18? If yes what about if their sons/daughter have no job?..im asian and its our culture that it is only during the time of marriage of our son/daughter that we are going to let them live a separate lives..im speaking in general terms here..i dont with the others..

if my children choose to live independently and are working to support themselves i will agree to let them live independently..inorder that they will know how and be able to decide for themselves..

I think before making a decision to let their son and daughters to live independently the parents must make sure that their son and daughter are mature enough and financially stable and emotionally stable.

I think it's wise enough. I'm also Asian, and insist myself to separate myself from my parents since I was 18, but too bad my parents still don't allow me to stay alone (but I already try to be independent by doing some jobs), and give the permit when I was 23. I also realize that if I'm being parents next time, I must give some choices to my kids, because I also feel that kids / children are not grow up because of parents, it's sounds to selfish being a parents. I also I can grow up right now not 100% percent from my parents education and moral thought, but mostly from what I saw in the social environment. And thx to my parents are fair enough as long I can responsible with my own life.
