It’s not just the economy that’s bringing grown kids back home, or keeping them from leaving in the first place. It’s also the shift in parents’ roles and responsibilities in their adult children’s lives in the 21st century. Guiding them through the critical third decade of their lives is a much more hands-on process for baby boomers than it was when we did our final stretch of growing up out of sight, if not mind, of our own parents.
Our ambition for independence was less complicated than it is today for 20-somethings, a whopping 63% of whom live at home for varying reasons and intervals. But whether or not parents and grown kids live under the same roof, they’re much more intimately involved with each other than they used to be. Current research as well as contemporary practice indicates that even kids who don’t live at home want, need, welcome and expect parental support – a child’s third decade will cost parents a third of the total amount they spent on the first two!
Today it’s tough to know when the parenting years are over, because the meaning of both parenthood and adulthood has changed. Even parents who don’t have the resources or inclination to subsidize a child’s meandering path to self-hood as well as self-sufficiency are wondering how to renegotiate their relationship as their kids navigate the complicated passage to maturity in a competitive, high stakes world.
This is just as true of hands-off parents who let their kids make their own mistakes (and presumably learn from them) as it is of helicopter parents and tiger mothers who parented (or overparented) for success from the start. As the cost of mistakes and the competition for the best of everything continues to rise, there’s less laissez-faire parenting going on than there used to be for fear that by the time the kids find their place in the world, it will already be taken.
