I think that parents shouldn't be holding their kids back, and always treating them like babies. But then again I don't think they treat them like adults if the kids are like 10. In my opinion...Just treat kids how you would have wanted to be treated by older people when you were that age.
It depends on the child per say I agree with kamakoa's answer but I was real babied when I was 10 and I started feeling like an adult around that age and working on moving out, I eventually did when I was 16. Everybody has a different level of wit and mature-ness.

The only way a child will stop growing up is if: 1. time has been frozen 2.the fountain of youth really exists and is found 3. the child dies Children grow up because they age. Parents used to be kids. Children cannot stop aging because their parents want them to. So, parents have to live with the fact that their children age and will eventually become adults, if any of the above conditions are not met.
Parents try to steer their kids in the right direction and prepare them for adulthood. Kids think that it's easy until they have to pay rent,electricity,phone bills,cable, transportation to get around and not to mention,food,etc.etc. It doesn't take long until most adult children end up asking to come back home. I say, show them the door and let them go and see what it's like to fend for themselves,all alone.
