  • Time to leave mama and papa!

    The news this week has been filled with an Italian couple who have resorted to legal action to get their 41-year-old son to leave home. They say:

    "He has a good job but he continues to live at home and wants his clothes washed and ironed and his meals cooked for him. He never wants to leave."
    In our research for It's Your Move, we've met many parents who wanted their child to learn independence skills so they could live on their own. That's the gentle way of saying they'd like their kid to leave.

    Reading the news articles on this particular case, the stats are that 48% of young Italians between the ages of 18 and 39 still live under their parents' roofs. And 56% in the 25-30-year-old range still live at home.

    I'm looking up the Canadian statistics ...

    Here are some other statistics:

    More than 50 percent of young Americans age 18 to 24 are living at home.
    In New York alone, about 20 percent of 25 to 34-year-olds live in multi-generational households, and increase of nine percent since 1980.

    And from Canada, a study from B.C.:
    As of 2006, the report shows 58 per cent of 20 to 24-year-olds still lived with their parents, compared with 20 per cent of 20 to 29-year-olds in 1981. More than one in ten 30 to 34-year-olds also still live with their parents.

    So if your child with TS+ is still at home, sounds like you've got lots of company ...
