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

It really depends on the culture. In many cultures, including our own once apon a time, the household unit was the extended family, not the nuclear. I think it is fine for a child to live with their parents as long as all parties are comfortable with it. In many urban british settings, it is common that you dont move out until you are married due to the cost and availability of housing. As long as the kid isnt a mooching deadbeat, as long as they want. If more people were willing to let their parents live with them later in life, there would be way less issues of elderly poor and so forth.
