Discover the Secrets to Successfully Dealing with Adult Children Living at Home
Learn the rules to making it work when adult children move back home, including how to word a contract that makes the rules clear!
From: Christina Newberry
If you’re faced with the frustration of dealing with adult children living at home — or kids who never left home — even though they are in their late 20s, 30s, or even 40s, you need to know you’re not alone.
The truth is nearly 25 million adult children are living in a home with their parents in the U.S. alone.
A recent Canadian census released in September 2012 showed that, of kids aged 20 to 29, over 42% live with their parents!
While it’s nice to think that families with adult children living at home can always get along like they do on TV, the fact is that having adult children return home — also called boomerang kids — can put a ton of stress on you and your partner.
The impact can include…
- Stretching your household budget beyond the breaking point.
- Having a negative influence on younger children still living at home.
- Leaving you with feelings of guilt, even when you’re doing all that you can (and maybe more than you should!)
- Actually holding your kid back from success and a fulfilling life by giving too much.
- The difficulty of deciding when it’s finally time to ask your child to leave!
As if these very real problems aren’t enough, you also need to make sure that you…
Don’t make the mistake of thinking your
Boomerang Kid is only affecting you!
One Canadian study found that couples who had kids back under their roof were 10% more likely to suffer through arguments than couples living in an empty nest.
It can be confusing: they are your children, after all, but they’re not kids. What rules apply? Do you charge rent? Do they have curfews?
And — if it comes to it — how do you kick out your own son or daughter?
Even more challenging are the so-called “boomerang kids,” adult children who return to live in the family home after already leaving once (or more)!
But as tough as it can be, there are families that make it work. The best way to follow in their footsteps is to…
Learn Survival Rules from
a “kid” who’s been there!
As an adult who has successfully lived with my parents after leaving home — twice — I’ve learned a few key strategies.
I’ve taken these winning strategies — along with a few mistakes — and combined them with proven communication tools and in-depth research to develop this step-by-step guide to surviving (and thriving!) when your child returns.
I’ve been able to offer practical advice to the hundreds of parents who have read my book and used my suggestions to improve their relationships with their adult children.
Plus, I’ve also reached tens of thousands more parents like you through interviews with media outlets around the world covering the growing issue of adult children who have returned home.
But as much media coverage as this issue has received, most parents need more help navigating this new territory.
They also need the tools they can customize to their specific circumstances. I’ll get back to these customizable tools and why they make such a difference in a minute, but first I want to tell you that…
Even the best parents need help
navigating this new arrangement…
Admitting you need a bit of help doesn’t mean you’re not a great parent.
In fact, it’s a sign that you are a caring parent, who wants only the best for your grown son or daughter who’s come back home to live.
The truth is, having adult children living under your roof isn’t the same as dealing with them when they were kids.
In fact, treating them the same way you used to is almost a guaranteed way of causing more problems than you solve, even with the best intentions!
You see, all of the professionals agree that to successfully cope with boomerang kids who come back home, you need to renegotiate your relationship.
This isn’t an easy thing to do!
Our guide will share proven tips to make renegotiating your relationship easier, including…
- Why setting up “house rules” is a crucial step that even your adult kids will appreciate.
- The secret to making contracts for grown children living at home work for everyone.
- The secrets to building solid communication habits with your kids.
- How to tell the difference between constructive support and dangerous support that can hurt your children.
- Three key ways adult children who return home must to be treated differently than before they left.
- But when you are renegotiating your relationship with your grown son or daughter, it’s easy to go too far.
After all, you love them and want to help.
However, sometimes too much help is dangerous, so you must…
Learn how to avoid the fatal
mistake of giving too much!
Even if you get along fine with your grown kids, many parents make the fatal mistake of giving too much, even to the point of jeopardizing their own hard-won financial security!
Plus, you may not be doing your adult children any favors…
A new survey indicates the percentage of people who purchase their own homes while in their 30s increases with age of departure from the parental home until about age 25 ñ then it drops.
After age 28, their chances of becoming homeowners are no better than children who fly the coop at 16.
