College Kids Living at Home–How Old is Too Old?
There comes a point in everyone’s life when it’s time to pack up and move out of Mom and Dad’s house. Usually this time comes around college, but that’s not the case for everybody.
As a college student, I’ll admit, I was a bit hesitant to move away from the place I called home for so long, but once I did, I couldn’t have been happier with my choice. In fact, I was SO happy with this choice, that I decided to move to an apartment off campus this summer instead of living back home. I enjoy having the freedom of not always having to answer to my parents (sorry Mom and Dad), and I like feeling efficient and like I’m accomplishing things on my own. Of course, every now and then I like to go home and sit down to a home cooked meal by Mom and catch up with my family.
However, I know of some people who disagree with me. Many of my friends still live with their parents, and while most of them are ready to move out, a few actually enjoy being home. Some of their parents are antsy to get their kids out of the house, while others love still being able to make their kids dinner and do their laundry.
But when does this get to be a problem? What age do you think is too old for college kids–or should I say adults, to be living at home with their parents? Make sure you tune in to Deminski and Doyle at 3:30 to discuss your stories and opinions about college kids living with their parents.
