It’s the new normal for young adults to move back home
As college dorms empty after commencements across the nation, many new graduates will join the more than 20 million other young adults, ages 18 to 31, who have “boomeranged” home. It’s so common that NBC recently launched a prime-time comedy, Crowded, about empty nesters whose life is disrupted by their young adult daughters.
Unlike a few years ago, moving home no longer carries a stigma. It’s the new normal. One survey found that millennials think it’s perfectly acceptable to live with parents for up to five years after college.
