I recently came across an article in The Guardian about how European youths are moving home due to a slowing economy. This week I got a call from my mom telling me that a friend confided in her and complained about her 25 year old daughter announced she’s moving back home. My mom gave me an earful about the “kids today” and how their parents aren’t teaching them accountability. In fact, I’ve heard many people take a stab at today’s youngest segment of the workforce for moving home after college. How could this be happening around the world? Is it truly a generational things or just circumstantial?
