Financial independence is taking full responsibility for your financial decisions, being responsible for your expenses, covering daily expenses and no longer having to depend on your parents for money.

So the question is when should you gain financial freedom from your parents?

If you don't have a steady or proper income then you can still be financially dependent on your folks but if you make a monthly and steady income you should gain financial freedom from your parent as soon as possible, which means you don't have to depend on them anymore for the monthly allowance.

If you earn a monthly income and after a while, you have not gained financial freedom from your parents, it might be difficult to have a proper financial goal which might lead to bad financial management, and could be worse when they are no longer in the picture to assist you.

If you have a problem with your expenses and income, it means you don't have a proper plan for your finance and you have bad money habits.
