Got married at 22 and moved out of my parents home and into my inlaws house. Moved out on our own several times, but since the baby came and inlaws health went downhill, we stayed to help them financially and physically.

This is why there is so much debt and poverty. Unless your kid has a steady and substantial job things are going to be very difficult financially.

I was raised by a single parent, my mother, and if I move out, she'll be all alone and sad, so I'm kind of reluctant to leave, but I am willing to help out around the house. It's only fair.

i think it's funny how all of the younger people on this are saying it's okay to live with your parents until you've saved enough money or you're "ready"... but have any of them stop to think what their parents want?? let me answer that for you. THEY WANT YOU TO MOVE OUT! they love you but they spent 20 some years dedicating their lives to you and would like to finally be alone. So stop thinking about yourselves and start thinking about your parents. if they don't really need your financial help or physical help MOVE OUT!!!!

That's a stupid thing to say. Kicking your kids out, before they are ready. This is what is wrong with America. Kids don't have the money to live on their own, but their parents want them out anyways. Then the loans happen, credit cards ect. Kids should save before moving. In other countries entire generations live together. The house was paid for many years ago, so no one has to worry about. Maybe you should learn from them.

Bless you, my boyfriend lives at home with his elderly (75 ) parents and helps take care of them. His mum has Alzheimer's and his dad an errant diabetic. His personal life is on hold most of the time, but I completely respect and support his decision. He is a good man.

Not all situations are the same. My son lost his job because the place he was working went out of business, he needed a place to stay until he got another job. Did I want him to move back home? Not really. Did I want him homeless, living on the street? Of course not, NO parent does. I made it clear from the start that it was only temporary, until he got back on his feet. He said to to me, "Mom,what 37 year old man wants to move back home when they've been on their own for the past twenty years. No I don't want to move back home, I do appreciate your help." Since I am widowed and living by my self, there were times I enjoyed the company and while he was staying with me (about a year), he paid me room and board while living in my home.

You might think I'm a bit unorthodox for saying this, but I've always found it strange how parents want their kids to pay rent. That's family. If it were a friend, that would be a different story, but your own child? Especially when he loss his job? I don't believe in that.

Speak for yourself. Once I and my younger siblings started growing up and moving out, my mother started adopting kids. She DOESN'T want an empty house.

and in some cultures, it's common or required that no matter what age you are, you live with your parents until you're married. Even then, a lot of times the woman (in a few cases the man) will move in with the other spouses family.

Sorry, you can't speak for my parents. They speak for themselves. And believe me when I tell you how completely blunt and honest they are, and they have told me point blank, they don't mind me staying here. My parents always tell the truth. So don't get on your high horse and think that every parent in the world thinks the same as you. Every family's situation is different, can't we leave it at that?

i didn't have the choice. it was a single parent house hold and my mother passed away when i was 14. had to live with an aunt and uncle left to go to another aunt and uncles with my younger brother. when i graduated i went to visit my sister and her family. found a job and rented a room from someone. so i don't know how this question fits my situation so i can't give an answer.

I think its quite reasonable for you to still get a job, you can mow your neighbors lawn or pull weeds, or if it snows where you live you can shovel their drive way and door way. You will be making big bucks in no time, as long as your neighbors aren't cheap and pays you cookies end stead >.<.

After I graduated high school, I stayed with my dad for one more year before going off to college. Does that count as moving out? I couldn't find a job that paid me enough for my apartment on campus (not a dorm), electric bill, food, and books, so my dad had to send me an allowance each month to cover what I couldn't.

Some of my uncles in Mexico still lived with their parents right up until my grandfather passed away 2 years ago. That's what I thought people did as I grew up so I think it's perfectly acceptable to never leave the nest. xP I do plan to leave as soon as I finish school though.

Must be nice; my dad passed away when I was 14 and my mom when I was 18. Tried living with family or friends, but by 22 I was off supporting myself. I don't hide my bitterness, but I do have a sense of pride at being able to live and support myself through college and beyond. Not doing too great (paying rent, bills, and necessities will do that to ya), but it's finally paying off and I'm looking forward to a great career :)

There's nothing wrong with living with your parents if you help them out any way you can. Also, everyone can't afford to live by themselves in a decent home and neighborhood if all you have is a minimum wage job. It makes more sense to save money while living with your parents, then leave when you are able to.

Get a better paying job! I'm sorry, but if all you aspire to be is a minimum wage, McDonald's employee, then don't sit here and complain. If you don't like it then go get a better education and better yourself!! Teach your kids to try their best and do the best they can so they don't get stuck working a minimum wage job and living at home forever. I'm sure someone will bash this, but there are THOUSANDS of people, from single parents, moms to 5 kids to 70 year olds who go back to school and somehow make it all work. I don't think there is anything wrong with moving back in with your parents if you need the help at the time. Help out the way you should be helping, by paying what you can, buying groceries and helping around the house. Everyone needs help at some time or another, but it is one thing to expect it and another to appreciate it and continue to help/better yourself.

It's not always as easy as "just get a better paying job". As SnwMth said, I know people who have college degrees who do NOTHING related to their degree as a job. Some people simply have to take what they can get, no matter what it is they really want.

Unfortunately, not until just last year, just before my 28th birthday. Couldn't afford to get my own place on the money I was making before. My moving wasn't even a choice I planned to make when I did, I was kind of forced into it by circumstance. Glad to not be living with my mother anymore, however.
