Did you ever notice that kids...

are in a hurry to grow up and leave their childhood behind,then go stagnant at 18 and want to remain a kid forever and live at home for free?
just an observation of the new generation.

  • I agree also. It seems that they want to live at home and still expect us to keep them up the rest of their lives. Or at least that's how I'm feeling. They don't want to help out paying the bills when they work, we are still expected to keep them up. They talk about how they want to get out of the house, but they would rather spend money on other stuff instead.

  • Guess my kids are an exception. My son is nearly 20 & still lives at home. But he has a job & pays rent. He would like to move out but can't afford it yet. He's saving up.

  • Can't say I've ever known that to happen... Everyone I know moved out or went to college at 18... I can't imagine anyone at 18 wanting to stay home...

  • I've met a few people kind of like that, but not many. Most of the people I know around my age (I'm 21) can't wait to leave their parent's home and be independent, though.

  • They called my generation the boomerangers. Everyone left for college or life outside of mama and daddy's then came back around 25 lol.
