I'm pretty independent. I do rely on my parents to take care of me, aka buying food, paying for the house we live in, driving, etc. But as far as making money (for myself) I do that because I haven't gotten a dime from my parents. X3 I rely on myself for feeding myself, settling my own affairs (like hanging out with friends, getting a job, bla). So its sort of fifty-fifty, my parents help me in what I ask them for help in, and I do what else I can on my own.
