Two of my boys have already left home, although very sad for me at the time ( still is if I'm to be honest)I know it's a natural progression.
I would never ask them to leave, well maybe if they were the entitled no hoping type, but my door is always open for any returns lol
My last son will be joining the army and leaving early next year,it's really hard to let go, to me he is still a baby but I'm confident he will do well.
So no I would never have a magic age where they were expected to leave and the locks changed lol
It's very confronting when your children start to leave home!

Im 20 and still live at home. No matter how hard I try I just cant get a rental (if I could, id be out of this sh*t hole). Ive never been asked to leave, never been given a set age to get out. I dont really think my mum cares if im here to be honest.
Her boyfriend, has been living with his dad for 7 years, only because he is elderly and he is caring for him after and accident he had that gave him ongoing problems. (Mums bf did leave home at 18).
I dont think id ever tell my kids to leave at a certain age. Id push them to be more independant and gradually help them to move out on their own.

They can stay as long as they like, and then build a house on our property if they want to! Yep, I'm a weirdo like that. Hope to keep my kids close for life, really.

I moved out at 18 with a one way ticket to Europe and my Mum said she would sniff my pillow and sit in my room. Being a teenager, I thought Mum was being melodramatic, but the thought of any of my kids moving to the other side of the world with a one way ticket..... .
