Sale of the family home can be painful
In the movie Sisters, when on-screen siblings Tina Fey and Amy Poehler learn that their parents are planning to downsize to a condo, they start screaming: “Mom and Dad sold our childhood home! This should have been passed on.” They are equally horrified that their parents also purged all the family mementos: “Each one of those objects is a puzzle piece in the story of our lives!”
The Sisters rant might not be typical. Still, many young adults don’t exactly cheer when they find out that their childhood home is on the market.
