A recent study came out showing that more and more young adults today are still living at home and/or returning to the nest after being away from home. Apparently there is even a name for this trend, “The Boomerang Generation“. Some developmental psychologists have argued that adolescents has been extended into the 30’s.
What do you think is contributing to the phenomenon of a “delayed adulthood”?
Despite living in an age of iPads and hybrid cars, young Americans are more like the young adults of the early 1900s than the baby boom generation: They are living at home longer, are financially insecure and are making lower wages.
