Independence is more important than education, far more valuable than money and an incalculably greater asset than security. Independent living helps distill what is most vital from the many distractions of adult life. Independence fosters more effective resource management, including improved control of our time as well as the complimentary skills of clear and effective communication with those who hold a stake in our responsibilities. Successful independence may even yield the exceedingly rare and splendid human experience of worthy pride, and culminate in a confidence of living gained of practice and refined through the honest scrutiny of error. For our adult children to know these boons they must enter – and never leave – the difficult and sometimes savage gauntlet of standing upon their own two feet.
