I completely relate to this post. I look forward to the day when our grown kids are financially independent --- slowly but surely that is beginning to happen, but it is still a ways to go....alas - signs of the times.

many of us look back at the financial independence we had at our kids' age, but it was such a different world then. we could get good jobs--we could even afford to take time off to travel around and see the world before settling down and starting our careers. Times have changed. and that's what those stats reflect.
