BBC Learning English 6 Minute English Adult children 6 Minute English © bbclearningenglish.com 2008 Page 1 of 4 Yvonne: Hello, this is '6 minute English' - I'm Yvonne Archer… Callum: And I'm Callum Robertson. Yvonne: Hi Callum - and thanks for joining me! In today's programme, we've got an interesting case from Italy and it makes us think about the question of – well, when as an adult, should you stop depending on your parents - financially? Callum: Hmmm… Yvonne: But let me ask you this: when did you stop depending on your parents? Callum: Well I suppose, financially, it would be when I got my first job and gradually became less financially dependent. So I suppose, when I was about 19 - 20 when I could make my own way. Yvonne: Well we're going to hear more about that topic, obviously, but first, the big question. Are you ready Callum? Callum: Oh – yes, another one of your tricky questions. Yvonne: Yes, but you usually get them right; let's see how you do. A 12 year old boy in the United States was the first to divorce his parents – but when did that happen? Was it in a) 1992 b) 1998 – or c) 2001?
