Yep, that's how it was in my family! It is SO hard to explain that to people who didn't grow up with that thinking, though.see thats the thing the legality of being 18 means nothing to us.I am speaking LEGALLY.Exactly and they will be his own, not under mom's approval...at some point, he will need to make his own choices and mistakes
The American government/society(not world) may see you as an adult at 18 but they are not exactly the best source of parenting with good values.
Never said anything about good/bad parenting and values. I am talking strictly from a LEGAL standpoint.
Im totally getting that feeling. When I was 18 the only thing that meant was that my curfew was an hour longer. When I would come home from college I still had a curfew, not that I would disrespect my mother by not coming home anyway.
