Default Re: OT : How Long Should Children Live with Their Parents?

I still live at home, and although I'd rather have my own place (for obvious reasons), I'm also grateful that my parents are willing to help me out by giving me a place to stay. I'm a college graduate and recently started a full-time job, so I won't be staying here that much longer, I don't think. I still have a little debt and am not making tons of money or anything, so it'll be necessary to save for a while.

My parents would never kick me out though. Both of my older sisters stayed in the house at least as long as I have. No reason to throw your kids the wolves if it's going to cause them to go into debt and potentially ruin their financial future for years to come (and maybe forever). Just teach good values and talk to them about managing their money intelligently.
