[color=darkred][/color][b]Parent's financial responsibility for their children should end at 18 years old.What do you think.I agree with this idea.I think when child reaches at the age of 18 if he/she can vote that child can begin to formulate and shape the financial,emotional and spirutal destiny of his/her own life at that time.My own feelings are that a child shouldn't be surprised at the age of 18 that he/she suddenly has to take responsibility for his/her self.They will acquire the rights of such but they should also expect the responsibilities,too.They should start worrying about their long future before they turn 18.They should need to figure out how to finance their own life.

I strongly disagree with your opinion. It all depends on the relationship the parents have with their children, whether they have enough money to continue to help their kids, whether or not the children are working full or part time, whether they are going to school, and whether they are looking for some early independence. I don't think you can use age alone to make that decision. I don't think parental responsibility suddenly ends at 18.
