Youngsters Should Leave Home After They Finish High-School

Have you come across the new magi advertisement where the girl tells her mom that it’s high time for her to become independent? In most of the foreign countries especially the U.S. and U.K, there is a culture of youngsters moving away from parents to live an independent life. However, this culture is not widespread in India. Only after completion of professional degree, youngsters in India move away from home to pursue or search a job. So, what do you think? Is it the time to change trend? Should youngsters leave home after they finish high-school?


- Youngsters will understand the value of money. Right from an early age they will start saving for a better future.
- When youngsters will face real problems of the world, they will understand the value of parents and family.
- Parents can feed their children for a lifetime, but this approach will not allow them to learn how to feed themselves.
- There are times when the atmosphere of home is not peaceful. In such a scenario, it is better for youngsters to find a direction in their l- ife.
- There always remains a generation gap between children and parents, and sometimes the best possible solution is to move away from home.


- Growing up is not only tough but also expensive. It is not possible for the youngsters to become financial independent at an early stage.
- It is not feasible to leave home after finishing high-school as the education is still not complete. A high-school education cannot fetch them a lucrative job.
- Parents can make youngsters learn a lot many things right from home. They can make strict laws that should be followed at any cost.
- Parents can always ask their children to share responsibilities and that is a much better way to make children independent.
- There is no sense when youngsters leave the home for fun, only to return back to home after some days.


The idea of leaving home after high school is not practical in a country like India. First of all, the economy is not so stable that it can provide jobs to all the youngsters. When it comes to financial independence or sharing responsibilities, it can always be done under parent’s supervision. The trend will result in higher number of Boomerangs with additional problems for parents.

  • We need to understand the perspective behind this topic under discussion; whether the leaving home by youngsters is related to the financial independence or to establish a better career in terms of their education. There is no doubt that sentiments and emotions play a vital role in India, especially when this comes to children and parents. This definitely have an ever-lasting influence upon the kids who might either keep dwelling on the warmth of parents, or try to escape the boundaries laid down for them.

    If we talk of financial freedom, then very correctly concluded, we cannot have such a space for so many youngsters in our country where unemployment has spread its wings all over. We cannot expect our youngsters to go ahead with searching a job to earn their living and carry on the studies. We definitely require a huge transformation in terms of economy to establish and expect financial freedom for our youngsters at such an early age.

    The lack of employment opportunities does not imply that the youngsters should be kept within the sphere of family and parents. They should be provided every possible opportunity to opt for the career of their interest. Again, this quote has to be bound by a clause, if the economic condition of the family / parents could support a living for their children away from them. It is pretty understandable that the children would be dependent on their parents for their monetary aspect till they finish with their degree, and that is clearly proportional to the family’s financial situation.

    To be precise, every individual / family should make their own decision to move out of the family for higher education depending on the personal and financial requirements of the family members.
