One of the tasks of adolescence is to separate from one's family and become an independant adult.

Using your knowledge of human development, hypothesize about the effects of this extended adolescence on the development of adult identity. Do you think it hurts? Can you think of ways it might help? What, if anything, should parents do to help facilitate the process?
