Son Leaves Home

My oldest is eighteen now and is a real home body . Recently my mom took him on a two week trip to Czechoslovakia. Everybody in my family is sad and misses him but me. I'm glad that he's finally doing something away from us. I hope that he gets an independent streak and says he wants to move out soon. I don't want to get rid of him. I just think it's good to be independent. Am I wrong to feel like this? I think it's good for an 18-year-old to get out on his own.

    I think it all depends on the child. I don't think you are wrong to feel like that. I am having mixed feelings with my daughter approaching 18.
