Adult Children Living at Home

Yesterday, I discovered Adult Children Living at Home, a blog written by Christina Newberry, a young woman has returned home to live with her parents twice. Interestingly, the blog helps parents anticipate and deal with issues that arise when an adult child moves home. The categories addressed include general advice, planning strategies, communication strategies, financial and budgeting tips. It also includes family stories and posts from the adult child’s perspective.

While my blog primarily addresses issues young adults encounter when moving out on their own, I have included one post acknowledging that sometimes the best option (if available) is to move home. In addition her blog, Christina has filmed six videos and written a book, The Hands-on Guide To Surviving Adult Children Living at Home, describing successful strategies to guide parents of boomerang children.

Christina’s six videos YouTube videos are:

Christina has the unique ability to look at issues from a parent’s perspective. If you find yourself needing to move home, it might be helpful for you to do the same. After all, moving home affects parents as well as the adult child. Considering one another’s perspectives before beforehand can help both parties clarify expectations, improve communications, and lead to agreement on an exit strategy.

Christina Newberry’s blog, book, and videos present useful information and a way to begin discussions between parents and adult children considering a move home. Check them out!

How did Christina’s blog and videos (created as guidelines for parents) affect your perspective on the issues she addressed?

    In the last few years it seems a lot of kids are moving back home post-college. I think the downturn in the economy has had something to do with this. In any event, if parents and kids can come to an agreement on living arrangements, I think it affords adult children a good opportunity to build up their savings for when they do venture out on their own.
