In the last 30 years, more young adults, ages 25 to 34, are migrating back home. These returning adult children are called the boo-merang generation. One in five of these adult children are returning to the nest. Most of those surveyed indicate that they simply do not have enough money to live on their own in the lifestyle that they prefer and want. The economic recession of recent years has made it difficult for young adults to get jobs and live on their own; many are extending their school years; others have student loan debt to repay. Adult children may have lost their jobs or are looking for a retreat after the breakup of an early marriage.
