How-To: Move Back Home Gracefully

How-To: Move Back Home Gracefully

This Old House recently offered advice for parents whose adult children were moving back home due to the economy. While the post offered smart tips about transforming a home space to welcome a 20-something or 30-something back into the nest, I thought that it might be more helpful to CasaSugar readers to look at the issue from the perspective of the child, not the parent.

This is obviously a difficult transition for everyone, but there are some ways to make the move a smoother one. And lest you feel like an anomaly, take heart in an AARP statistic, cited in the article, finding that of 1,000 adults surveyed, 33 percent aged 18 to 49 live with their parents or in-laws.
