- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I grew up in Sweden too. I think your friends who moved out from their parents probably had a lot more support from their parents and from society in the form of subsidised rent, studiebidrag (monthly allowance from the state) etc.
Teens in Sweden are usually granted a lot more freedom AND responsibilities than most american youths and I think they are taught a lot more in school and at home about how to live an independent life. Plus society takes care of you a lot more!
