Our big girl is 20 (will be 21 later this year), and let me just say that it went very well with her. It's so trying at times, but we pulled through. She's a great kid, amazing big sister, wonderful person. She's starting 3rd year medical school next week. Living on her own and doing great, luckily still comes home several times a week.
I think what really made a difference for us was that she always talked to me about stuff, it was so important to me that she could always say anything to me.
