When they are done with college, have a steady income and some money saved up.

I checked "never," but my opinion tends to be skewed since my son passed away at age 16.

Kay Kay - so sorry - as a parent I cannot imagine.

As for me I checked 18-19 - but that meant leave for college - away from home. Fly little birds - fly!
