Why are more adult offspring living with their parents than ever before? | 60 Minutes Australia
Crowded House (2006) Once upon a time, kids couldn’t wait to escape the oldies. But not anymore. Now, more than a third of 20-somethings in Australia are still living with mum and dad. Or to be really tough, still sponging, because most pay little or no rent. Half a million over-55s now have grown-up children living with them – that’s an increase of 50,000 in the last two years. Some kids never leave, and others become “boomerangs”. They move out, then before you know it, they’re back again. But this crowded house syndrome isn’t all the kids’ fault. Often it’s the clinging oldies who just can’t let go.
