Ds has already asked if he can live with me while he's at uni.,lol. How cute. I'm happy to have him stay while he's at uni but he will be definately helping around the house and contributing something financially. I have already told him I will help to buy his first car but he must also contribute. After he graduates I don't really know, I will just cross that bridge when I come to it.
And the parents that allow their kids to live at home and not contribute financially or with chores, I would go so far as to say this is neglect and very bad parenting. When the parents eventually pass on , the adult child will crumble and have no experience in standing on their own two feet.

The girls will always be welcome to live here.
I wouldn't expect them to contribute financially but would expect them to save.
As for chores, I'm already teaching my 3 year old that everyone helps around the house so it wouldn't be any different as an adult.

I don't have a cut off age.. If my kids are at uni or doing apprenticeships, they are more than welcome here for as long as they need.. I am scared of them leaving actually, my 13 year old talks about moving in with mates when he finishes year 10 and it makes me gag! Lol
I moved out 3 months after having DS when I was 21 and my parents were devastated.

If he works for a big is company he maybe able to transfer to the new town.
The reason I say this is if apply to other states he will get a offer from each state. Increasing his chance of getting his preferred choice. I am All about keeping options open if you can.

Yes, when both parents and child are ready and prepared for it. It is never ok to throw your unprepared son/ daughter out to fend for themselves. My parents threw me out, giving me nothing but the clothes on my back, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I was 19, at uni, didn't drink, didn't do drugs.. my parents were/ are just mean.

Anyway one day I got a letter saying I would receive a $3000 scholarship! I rang up and asked why when I hadn't applied, turns out so few people applied for them they had some left over so gave them to the highest entrance rank applicants, which I was. So it definitely never hurts to apply. I think most kids are too lazy to chase things like that up so there aren't as many applicants as you would think.
