When it comes to moving home, people often will look at it with many different points of view.
Some people will look forward to moving home as it reunites them with friends and family; some people do it out of necessity, and others will view moving home as something that they will avoid at all costs.
A recent study published by the Christian Science Monitor shows that as many as 30% of adults ages 18-34 years old have been moving home to live with their parents again.
The majority of those surveyed stated that the economy and the lack of a nurturing financial climate has made it difficult or even impossible to live on their own, leading them to move back into the rooms and dwellings in which they grew up.
The research, which was done by the Pew Research Center, further broke it down into two age groups.
For the older half of the group that was surveyed, they found that around 29% of 25-34 year old lived at home, while over 53% of 18-24 year old person had either never moved away from home and or were forced into moving home before really establishing any roots at all.
The teens, twenty- and thirty-somethings are now being referred to as Boomerang Kids.
In case you don’t get it, its because they ventured out into the world and then came back, similar to the path of a boomerang when it is thrown properly.
As the age of the persons surveyed increased, it was also found that some of the respondents had boomerang multiple times, moving out and then moving home again several times in their lives.
Surprisingly enough, over three quarters of the responses indicated that the people who had moved home were actually happy being back where they grew up, while one quarter of them said that it had had a positive effect on their relationship with their parents.
