    I'd rather live at my parent's nice place then say...the basement "apartment" with no hot water or a shower that cost $800 a month.

    Edit: That in NO way makes me a pedophile!

    ^Right. I agree with this PB.

    But still, the word cocoon to me means something different. Unable to function in the world for lack of support systems, whether that is govn't, church, family.

    Not neccessarily financial, even though this could very well be the case, too.

    I'm sorry, not for the first time I'm totally lost! Secular? Repression? [scratches head]

    I'm talking about young adults who stay living at home with their parents, often enjoying a rent free existance with full laundry, housemaid, chauffeur and chef services provided by a doting Mom and who don't leave home to live independent lives even if they can afford to because they have never had to face the 'terrifying' prospect of fending for themselves Out There in the big wide world. It's a worldwide pheonomenon. I know it's a pretty long bow but it makes me wonder.

    Ok. Well, it would be nice if you'd post such articles because I've never heard of it in the news. None at all. Nada. Zilch.

    But I agree it goes on.

    When I have students who whine about not "having time" to do their assignments, 9 times out of 10 they are living at home in the conditions that A*O describes. I can't take anyone over the age of 18 seriously who isn't at least doing their own laundry, chores etc. in lieu of rent (or even paying rent if they have a job). Some students get free rent while they're in school, but a lot of students seem to be professional freeloaders and many do it long after school is over.

    Funny, the mature (older than early 20s, teens) students have loads more responsibilities, including bills, and they almost always have their work in on time.

    I follow what you're saying, now PB. It really shouldn't be that hard, you know?

    Especially if most of the manual labor is already being done, and they're there for higher intellectual pursuits.

    I am basing my comments on my own personal observations of employed young adults I know who are still freeloading off their parents and living at home when they should have flown the nest a long time ago and who, perhaps, don't feel ready to leave home because they have been over-protected their whole lives and don't have the basic life skills to make a successful transition from dependant child to independant adult. Why do I need to quote a non-existant article to validate a personal view?

    There has been a lot written about this lately, but I'm too lazy to Google it.

    There's even a popular cheese commercial in Canada right now about how to get your kids to leave home -- stop serving cheese!

    There's even a movie called Failure To Launch about a rich brat who won't leave home and his spineless parents won't push him.

    Well, you don't need to validate anything unless you want too.

    I think I read one article as such. It's been a couple years. It's the single adults that are not moving out.

    The media doesn't touch on these articles too often.
