Question Adult children V parents

Was having a chat about this recently:

It's often said that when parents move to another country to live, it's frowned upon if they leave there adult children behind (or the children do not want to go with the parents) but it's acceptable when the children move to another country and leave the parents behind......

Has anyone experienced this and what was the outcome......... Not everyone's views are the same on this discussion.

Be interesting to read.

Everyone is entitled to live their life how they choose, in my opinion. Doesn't matter if your the child, parent, sibling.. surely you would get enjoyment out of a loved one doing what makes them happy?

I would have hated it if my family made it difficult for me when I chose to move overseas, much like it was a tense time when we told my husband's family we were relocating to Australia.

Generally, I find that these are opinions held by older generations (my grandparents, his etc) because it's just different to what they are used to
