I must be nuts... I welcome my adult daughter 22 living at home.... She has interest in moving on, but right now she is getting on her feet.. She just finished college...btw she has been in college since she was 16yrs old. She graduated from community college shortly after high school graduation with an associates degree in liberal arts, she just graduated from Ursuline College a perfect 4.0 honors student, Suma Cum Laude. She interned 2 semesters at a local NBC affiliate in Cleveland and was hired on full time as a news assistant. Just recently she was offered a created position for her at Ursuline she is head of Marketing and Social Media. She has her own office full benefits, and makes $19 to start with a raise in 6 mos, not to mention she has Sjogrens Syndrome an auto immune disease to deal with daily, sooo why am I saying all of this... She lives at home and we have NO problem with her living here... Our girls are always welcome in their home ... My oldest daughter chose a different path, she married and moved into her own home. But our youngest lives here, she pays rent, pays for her truck, her insurance, her own clothing ect... I buy the food, the toiletries, ect... Just like I always have. My daughter is a responsible, smart, young woman, she has a nice boyfriend but right now has no want to move out... And we are fine with that. Why do they have to go??? If they work hard, contribute to the household, and are responsible why can't adult kids live at home. My brother lived at home until he was 36, he worked a full time job in addition to caring for the house while my parents worked... He did all the maintanence with my dad, paid rent, ect ect... He now is married owns his own home has one child of his own and raised my sil 2 children from young ages. Point is my mother never thought to make him leave ... There was no need for it. Am I insane???? I have raised two responsible, hard working young women, one is out on her own the other is home until she to is ready to be out ... But this is thier home, They will never be turned away even if someday they fall on hard times and need a place to seek comfort ... I hope I don't get bashed this is just me speaking up a little... Btw my husband has lived in this house since he was 4yrs old.... He has 5 siblings. His father passed away when he was 10yrs old in 1965 ... Through the years his siblings left one by one..he stayed with his mother in her home... I moved in here when I was pregnant, we were married and stayed here... We lived with his mom in her home until she became ill with Parkinson's 10yrs Later... I cared for her as did my 10yr old and 5yr old until my sil's thought to put her in a nursing home... But because we stayed here with her she was able to live at least the first 4yrs of her disease in her own home.. Isn't it good to have adult kids living with you sometimes??? We bought this house from her under her direct order .... This was my husbands home as a child and was our daughters home as children and will always be their home...no matter their circumstances. Just an opinion just a thought.... : - )
