“In a 1993 Newsweek poll, 80% of parents with young children said children should be financially independent from their parents by the age of 22. Today, only 67% of parents hold that view. Three-in-ten (31%) of today’s parents say children shouldn’t have to be on their own financially until age 25 or later.”

No, wait, that’s a movie.” then you’re hopefully on the same page as the rest of us by the end of this sentence.
