18. Kicked out actually. Can't imagine why. Maybe I was "banned" from home... Smile

They probably did you a favor. I know of someone who is 44 years old, doesn't work and still lives at home. He lives off his father's pension. It sickens me that an adult would take advantage of an elderly parent.

18. 2 months after I got my first full time job.
Never gone back for more than dinner.

Sister was 25 or 26 I think.

18! Left Dauphin for University.

I went back for 2 of 5 summers while getting my degree, but wouldn't call it 'moving back home'. Stuff never came out of boxes.

Moving out young was the best thing that happened to me. If my daughter can stay at home until she gets an education, whether it's a doctor or a hairdresser. After that, out you go!

I was 23. Needed to wise up, stop blowing money, and to pay attention during anger management class.

My kids can stay at home until they are finished college or university. If they decide to work FT instead then they will be paying rent and can stay here while working FT till the age of 24. I feel that is fair.

I was 20 when I moved out. Already had my first child and on the verge of getting married. Moved in with my soon to be hubby. For a very short time we lived with my grandmother and mom while the apartment we were renting was under construction so I don't really call that moving back home. My kids however are all adults and I still have 2 at home, my 26 year old son and 22 year old daughter. He works full time and pays rent to us and my daughter just finished college so once she gets a full time job, she too will pay rent. Right now I don't have a problem with either of them being at home but I am sure there will come a time when they will want to leave. I understand why my son doesn't want to leave and we are both ok with him being there.

Had I stayed any longer, I would have had WWIII with my parents. Needless to say, we became much closer as I entered my 20s.

Ditto. Barely spoke to family members I lived with until a month after I left. Had my first actual conversation with my sister only after I moved out. Now we all get along great.
