Adult Kids Living At Home

by Dr. Karen Ruskin on June 1, 2016

In a May 24, 2016 article, PEW Research writes: “In 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were slightly more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they were to be living with a spouse or partner in their own household”. This has led various news outlets to bring in guest experts to discuss potential theories as to why. WWL-AM/FM radio interviewed me on the Tommy Tucker Show where I shared my theory, parenting tips, and concerns. If your adult child is living at home, if you are considering him/her to move back home with you, or if you are the millennial living at home with your parents or considering as such, I invite you to check out my interview: Adult kids living at home.  Themes such as: entitlement, teaching one’s children life skills, the importance of experiencing challenges, self empowerment, and how to provide support as a parent versus creating reliance, are a few of the topics I discussed in it’s direct tie in to the importance of not living at home with one’s parents when an adult.
