The author reflects on the effort of the government of Italy to encourage adult Italians under 30 years, who are still living with their parents, to live on their own by giving them 1,000 euro tax break. He hopes that such measure should also be implemented in Australia to help young adults grow and build their own character. He relates his own experience of leaving home when he get married, and notes that it helped his parents enjoy their twilight years.
