Some young adults want independence from their parents as soon as possible. Other young adults prefer to live with their families for a longer time. Which of these situations do you think is better? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

There are two types of people: those that prefer to live away from their parents once they are young adults, while others love to stay dependent on their parents and live with them for longer periods. In my opinion, I believe that the situation of leaving parent’s house is better for several reasons. I will consider two reasons in the next paragraphs that will emphasize my opinion. First, Leaving the childhood home in youth is the right way to build confidence in the early stages of the journey. Furthermore, this will build more self-independence in many areas of life. I realized this point from my brother. After finishing his four college years, my brother went to live in another city away from our home. He stayed there for three years. He was working as a freelancer during this period, and he did good work. When he last visited us, I noticed a significant change in his confidence in his work, and experience. Secondly, early independence improves personality. It develops personal skills, work experience, and many other related skills. Generally, if you started making money when you are 18, you would have more experience than who just started working when he or she was 25. The same idea is with personal skills development. For instance, I can infer that what improved my personal and life skills during the last two years is attending a boarding school away from my city. During these two years, I developed many skills like graphic design and programming. Also, I developed my communication and problem-solving skills. In conclusion, it is much better to be self-independent in your early life than to just depending on your parents. This will improve personal skills, self-independence, and flexibility with life changes. Furthermore, it will offer the opportunity to try and fail many times; thus, you will have more experience and more chances to succeed.
