But overall I think you have to stand on your own 2 feet, and get some experience of the world without family to back you up all the time. Its part of growing up really.
Also, I feel its a little patronising for others to say that women need to be "protected" to the point where they never live on their own with their own space, in their own home.
If you want to learn to cook, theres some good books around...you could just spend the day with your mum making food to take on a picnic the next day or something?
Good food, learning a new skill and quality time with you mum and some sisters/your family all in one fell swoop, lol!
