I don't get it either. I was raised on the "You turn 18, you are out of here and on your own," parental theory. It worked great. I might let my kids stay longer than that, but only if they are going to school and helping on the farm-ette, and I need the help, and they don't irritate me too much. No one will ever mistake me for a helicopter. Consider me eagle-mom instead. "You're hungry? well, I guess you'd better figure out how to fly out of this nest then, 'cause I'm done bringing you dinner..."
