Moving back in with the folks
Adult children moving back in with their folks used to be looked down on.
They were ‘‘failed fledglings’’, ‘‘Boomerang kids’’ and ‘‘parasite singles’’.
They were treated with exaggerated scorn.
You still live with your parents? Come on, man! Move on, move out, grow up!
Well, no more.
These days in our main cities, staying at home into your 20s, or moving back in for a spell of focused house deposit-saving, is a sane response to insane house prices.
Parents who let their children stay at home past the age of 21 should no longer be accused of having raised weaklings unable to face the real world.

The last census showed the number of people over 21 still living at home was around 150,000
