My college is two minutes from my house, which I will be going to for two years. When I transfer to UGA I'll move out. I don't understand the American social pressure to move out when you hit 18. Where does that come from?

This is a concept that eludes me also. And the idea of parents making their kids pay rent is such a foreign concept to me.

lol, yes. I help my mom out with rent if she were struggling. I understand the forced rent if your kid is 30 and not looking for a job.

True. The people I know who pay rent don't seem to have parents who are "struggling" though...
