“One in five people in their 20s and early 30s is currently living with his or her parents. And 60 percent of all young adults receive financial support from them. That’s a significant increase from a generation ago, when only one in 10 young adults moved back home and few received financial support.” (It’s Official: The Boomerang Kids Won’t Leave, New York Times Magazine, June 20, 2014.)
It’s hard on both parents and adult child when the child moves back home, whether for just the summer or a longer stretch of time. Close quarters are exacerbated by unclear and changing roles, mixed emotions, and challenging economics. All generations are invited to join this workshop to better understand the common emotional and economic factors that underpin these inter-generational conflicts and to develop skills and strategies to see each others’ perspectives and interests and increase peace and well-being.
