Comunication and shared expectations are the keys to success when adult children are living at home

A recent Christian Science Monitor article shares a number of strategies for ensuring a successful experience with adult children living at home. Their tips echo some of my strategies, and like me, they emphasize that communication and shared expectations are the most important factors to ensuring that your relationship with your adult kids doesn’t suffer when they live in your home.

Remember, we are all human, and everyone will make mistakes. But if you talk openly and honestly, you can avoid resentment and a lot of negative feelings. Living with your adult kids can be a positive experience for both you and them, as long as you know how to make it work, and are prepared to put in the effort.
