"Convenience" brings adult kids home to nest

A study released last month in Australia shows that while some adult kids are moving home for financial reasons, some just like the fringe benefits that come with living with Mom and Dad. According to an article in the Brisbane Times:

The report found men did less cooking and cleaning when they were living with their parents than they did when living out of home. For men aged 20 to 24 the difference was more than two hours a week: those living at home spent three hours and 15 minutes a week on domestic duties. Those who lived away spent five hours and 25 minutes cooking, cleaning and gardening.

Are you providing extra “convenience” that’s keeping your adult kids at home too long?
