This is something many of our parishioners are facing across our Diocese and occurring across our country - adult children living at home. For many it is a choice made out of necessity. A staggering number of college graduates are unable to begin a career in their field of study, are forced to take lower wage jobs just to be able to make their college loan payments. And others find the security of living at home comforting and many families enjoy the extended time with their adult age children before they move on with their own family plans.
But the family dynamic can become strained as boundaries set when the, now adult, was underage, may need to be revisited. Perhaps there is a need to consider charging rent to offset increased utility, grocery and other bills.
