Back in mid-August, the New York Times published an article entitled What Is It About 20-Somethings?: Why are so many people in their 20s taking so long to grow up?. It’s an interesting — if very long — read, especially if you have adult kids at home and are struggling to understand how you ended up in this situation.
Loads of people have written response to this piece online, but the first I’ve found that I’ve felt is worth linking to is from Charles Jeffrey Danoff of danoff.org. As a twentysomething back in his parents’ nest, he shares some great insights — and tidbits from an important conversation with his mother — that offer a great perspective from a thoughtful adult child at home. It’s worth a read, and you can find it here.
