This is true of hunter/gatherer societies right up to our own day. See Colin Turnbull's 'The Forest People' and 'Wayward Servants'.

Children in the most 'advanced' societies of our own day are not permitted any form of self-sufficiency...in fact, most adults remain in a state of dependence until they die.
