Boomerang Kids - The trend of adult children living in their parents' home [MEDIA]

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Aussie Baby Boomer parents are experiencing a growing trend where their adult children are staying at home. In a society where cost of living is increasing, the parents' home is often a fall-back option.

Mark McCrindle appeared on Today Tonight last night to shed some more light on this subject. For a generation with more lifestyle debts, travel more & spend more on technology, the savings that come from living at home is a good incentive!
