Autonomy?

According to this New York Times article, more adults, especially women, are becoming more attached to their mothers in adulthood.

Some of the things described in that article is somewhat unsettling to me, like calling your mom more than four times a day, for more than 8 hours total, or buying a house two blocks away from your mother, and talking about sex with parents.

Perhaps it’s just me, but I find these things reflect some kind of neediness. Whatever happened to autonomy? I mean I’m grateful for my family’s support, but most of the time I resolve things on my own, and I turned out fine.

Oh wait, no I didn’t. I turned out to be a hyper-conscious, skeptical pseudo-intellectual who’s ambivalent about everything because he is epistemologically confused.
