Are Adults Living at Home Ruining Their Parents Lives?
At a time where so many kids are still living at home with their parents and rent free. Who does it take its toll on? Are the kids miserable or is mom and dad?
Parents are always sad to see their kids leave the nest. However, that doesn't mean that they want you to stay there forever. Some time the birdies have to fly. You've got to admit that there's a certain negative stigma about men and woman over a certain age that still live with their parents. If a grown adult can get past having to sneak a significant other past mom and dad there are some serious perks.
According to Money Watch from CBS News, over 30% of adults ages 18-34 still live with their parents. This can save the kids a lot of stress but who then takes the burden?
A recent article posted in The Guardian states that parents who have their adult children still living with them are really cramping their style. Parents who still need to provide for their grown up kids have a high depression and stress level.
If you still live at home with mom and dad, be sure to pull your weight around the house and make things as a little easier for them.
