AH... !
( [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])

Well, gee... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] ... "living on my own" means just what most people
(people without children ! - who've recently reached their majority)
think ! it means - ie; 'I live without my parent(s), grandparent(s)
or benefit (drawback?) of the presence of any supervising adult
(harshing my mellow.) [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I am responsible for : my place of residence - ie; the rent; the food,
the furnishings, (incuding ! towels and sheets!) cleaning prducts, etc. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
AND... I come and go as I please ! without parental hindrance *er* guidance.'

HOWEVER... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
What "living on your own" means to a recently (semi)-emancipated
offspring of yours is [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] :
MOM frequently pays for a LOT! of the contents as : food, furnishings
and "occasionally" (riiiight... ) the rent.
Certainly MOM "helps" to pay the electric, phone, etc., some-to-most of the time.
(While the aforementioned recently (semi)-emancipated offspring reminds Mom
- at any/all given opportunity - that he/she/they are "living on their own now!" )

AND ... the aforementioned (recently)-semi-emancipated offspring
frequently! "shops" (in Mom's home) for: food, (mainly peanut butter (?) furnishings,
linens, PAPER PRODUCTS ! (did they think T.P. was free?!?) - and the odd item of
furniture (items that -amazingly [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] ! will go "just perfectly !" in their ! recently
newly-acquired apartment.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Why ?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] What does "living on your own" mean ... to you? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] (she asked innocently)
knowing the number of recently semi-emancipated offspring you have... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Not asking about anyone here. Just wondering if "on your own" means leaving the parents to have a husband who pays all bills.
I am just a little stunned when a 19 year old feels she is adult, on her own and is far more mature... because she is "on her own". To me... she hasn't seen nothing yet and has a long road ahead of her.

As Ja'aj put it. One would need to be solely responsible for all your own doings,without help every other day for this or that!

Most-all kids need a helping hand now and again.

It's not easy to move from the shelter of a parents home to the responsibility of the big,bad world out there ,but learn they must !!
My kids were very independent,the only thing ever i was asked for was a recipe for chicken paprika ,easy smile2 although one of them was in the habit ,from time to time to be turning up round about meal times, often !

Ya know, I never thought I knew all the answers. I knew a lot of answers, but even back then, I wasn't always sure exactly what questions some of them belonged to.

Tater,
Me either - I came from a family of people who
were very clear about that "sort of thing". [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
(No know-it-alls allowed, boy... )
Ya know... I neverfelt completely "out there" -It not really -
until my Mom died. She was always my secuirty blanket -
and I always knew that.
It felt kinda strange to be ... my age [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] ... and suddenly
to be apprehensive about, " [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] What if..."
