depends on many situations. Your son couldnt secure an admission into the university on time and he graduates and serves at 25, then spends the next 2-3 yrs looking for a job. Mean while you know he's not lazy, he's been hustling here and there to help himself. In fact he rarely ask u for money. Will u throw him out simply cos he's 27 or 28??

20 years.

They can always come home though to pack foodstuff, and sleepover atimes.

The main thing is to raise them right, and raise them to be independent and to believe in themselves.

One would always pop in to check on them regularly though, cos as a parent your eye no go fit take am

For my daughters, I don't think I will let them stop living in the house until they are married. It doesn't have to do with not trusting them but security reasons. For my sons, hmmm not sure. I wouldn't mind them staying in the house until they are married as well but I think at some point they might want to move out. Nah, they will stay In the house until they are married except if they work in a different state or country.

As for me, I am under 25, as soon as I get a well paying job, even if my workplace is right under their noses...phewwwww! I'm out.

Hmmmm....

The males: As soon as they are old enough to want a girl to sleep over. Whether they are in primary 2 or done with school and working, the day I catch them having their GF sleep over...vooooom, they should biko go set up their empire.


The females: The day the bobo comes to pay their dowry.

However, for both they could leave as soon as we both trust and agree that they would be fine on their own wink

I feel whenever they are ready to leave they can go,so long as they consent to the fact they as soon as they leave my house, no more allowance or pocket money.
The entrepreneurs usually leave home the quickest, cause they need to find their feet and petty family errands might stifle them.
