Lots of adults are moving back in with their parents

If you watch the news you will see how in some cases the economy is still trying to rebound from the recession.

As a result of the recession you will find a large number of people who have experienced job less, the inability to find a job after graduating from college or foreclosure. With these changes comes having to make the decision to move back in with ones parents in order to save money.

Until people can get back on their feet there are a lot of individuals who have taken the route of living with their parents. Along the journey there are some individuals who have saved money and moved out in a reasonable amount of time.

On the other hand there are some who have extended their stay and worn out their welcome. Once this occurs how does a parent bring themselves to tell their grown child to GET OUT?

In order to avoid having to have this conversation their should be ground rules upon the adult entering back into the parents home.

First, in the beginning set a timeline that both parties think is reasonable. This helps so there are no misunderstandings. What this does is it gives moving out a time frame. It also gives the one moving out a chance to plan their exit. Last but not least if gives the parent an idea of when they can get back to a normal life as they know it, living alone and loving it.

If you are in this situation where you have allowed your adult child to move in without an exit strategy good luck, you just may have inherited an unwanted extended stay roommate who has no plans to leave.
