I hate to say it, and certainly no offense to the original poster, but setting boundaries is not always cruel or sad. It is sometimes a tough but healthy decision for "kids" to make. Not everyone has loving and supportive parents. Some are hateful, judgemental, and interfering. Some parents belittle your family and disrespect your life choices. I don't mention this to imply that this is the case with the original poster, but because for the past 15 years I have been on the receiving end of the "oh how awful" remarks, and it isn't. Not for me, and I doubt for my parents, either. Sometimes a little space can increase the joy for everyone.

Interesting, I read the post as stating that she did not want the son to be in easy drop in range of her. One of those "it is time he did his own laundry" things.
