I'm 18 now and I've moved to Rhode Island to attend Brown. I'm not "on my own" yet, but I am away from home. I still visit home whenever I get the chance, though. :)

Early 20's. I was in the military and then college. My family moved to Florida and I didn't follow. No ill feelings one way or the other, Dad semi-retired and bought a bait shop - everyone just went with him - except me.

I'm glad your kids did well. Good upbringing!

It's all guesswork bringing up kids and if they turn out ok, then you must have done something right...
