Re: Children turning 18 - staying with parents

One of mine boomeranged after 4.5 years in the US, and has recently moved out after two years back (she took up a second apprenticeship, one year to go).

Advantage was that as she successfully finished her first one, I was no longer financially responsible and thus she was eligible for health insurance and other subsidies, despite living with me.

Keep this in mind.

My eldest wants to finish his current apprenticeship (so 3 more years), then go for a year to live with his Grand Parents, whilst they are still about, work on some projects there and then come back and do electronics, which would take about another two years. That scenario might work in my favour

My daughter is visiting me tomorrow so will talk with her, not that I need an immediate answer but getting a sense of what she would choose to do would help me.

My youngest son, well this is going to be a shocker for him but will just give him what the options are and see what his feedback is, when I next see him. Want to try and reassure him because of the three children he is the one most at risk.

Did mention to my eldest and my daughter that if it was likely all of them would live with me, I might move a bit further out and go for more space!
