Today, is 23/24 a decent age to move in? And why don't people move out at 18 anymore?

Yes, I think 18 is good if you are mature, go to college and are self-sufficient, however it is possible that if you are in college you still need parents for your insurance, and that means all the lines from car to the doctor. Therefore, you are not self-sufficient.

Previously. I worked at 15, full time at 17 and only really at 19. That happens very seldom now, school is different and jobs don't pay enough without college and advanced trades, so how do you it goes? about doing it when, to some extent, the school is not prepared to provide what is necessary at 18 years old.

There is no economy for secretarial work, automation took it away. Operator used to be a lot of people job, now you press 5 numbers, stand by and talk to autotron.

Our advancements have made our children more dependent on us and they simply cannot graduate from high school and earn a living. We are slaves of technology, no one knew this, the Super Highway stole all the entry level jobs.

Our kids need a graduate degree to move and have a career, so you pay off student loans forever. That is, unless you receive funds. So maybe at 40, you can feel self-sufficient, things have changed a lot. No, 18 is not an age that most can leave home and be free, not totally, unless you are in the military, where you can have your benefits and earn a salary, even then most of the time they tell you who lives on the base or ship, is not allowed to do all things due to age.

I am 18 years old and I live alone, although I am not self-sufficient. I would like to be, but my parents, with whom I have had major disagreements in the last 2 years (when I had lived with them), have been kind enough to help me financially. I could not pay the rent with the benefits that I have. So they pay SOME things and just expect me to keep my apartment in good condition in return.

(Before you say "get a job," I'm starting college this month. I'm not one of those people who can juggle full-time studies, a job, health + nutrition AND a social life. I fought tremendously to get through high school

I'd say about 3/4 of my friends, who are also the same age, have moved. So people still move at 18. Maybe it's different outside of Northern Europe?

Way back when, when I moved from my grandmother's house, I was 22 years old and I was going to get married. We didn't move very far. We moved right next to his house. We rent your one bedroom cabin. We pay my grandmother a monthly rent and pay our own utilities. My grandmother and my father raised me. I started working when I was in high school at 17 years old. My mom died when I was 3 or 4 years old. I had a close relationship with my grandmother. When I got pregnant at 24 and needed help with my baby, my grandmother was there to help me.

To answer your question, yes 22 or 23 is a good age to move in. To move forward in your life. Just make sure you have a job, so you can be responsible for yourself. Pay your way.
If you have a job, you don't have to depend on anyone but yourself, you already know how much money you make each week and month. You know how much you can spend on food, clothes, and other things. Or if you have to reduce your spending habits. You are in control of your own life.

The cost of housing, food, utilities, taxes, etc. make it difficult for people to move on their own, regardless of their age.

The best approach is to get a job, set a budget that includes the expected cost of utilities, rent, insurance, annual taxes, food, clothing, etc. how much these things cost). Work and save until you can live comfortably on that budget without the help of your parents, friends, etc.

Then you can go find a place. Use SOME of the savings to deposit. Keep as much of those savings as possible, and

Then you can go find a place. Use SOME of the savings to deposit. Keep as much of those savings as possible; you should always have enough to pay the entire budget for up to 6 months, in case of job loss.

I guess it's getting harder and harder these days to find an entry-level manual job that pays enough to support someone fresh out of high school, so high school graduates ask to live with their parents while they stay. they establish enough to earn enough money to move in and support themselves independently. Perhaps also, fewer young people want to make the transition to full independence by sharing a rental with roommates or housemates, because that means living in less luxury.

23/24 is a decent age to get away from your parents. I may not be counseled at 18 because many are just graduating from high school and unable to live independently.
