More Your Adults Are Heading Back Home

Posted: Updated:

A record number of young adults are moving back in with their parents. The study, done by Pew Research, shows a growing trend for the millennial generation -- those age 18 to 31.

In 2012, 21.6 million of these young adults were living at home with their parents. Compare that to 2007 with 18.5 million.

This can have a big impact on parents. Data from the American Time Use Survey shows that many of these parents are spending at least eight hours per week taking care of their adult children. And not surprisingly to some - the moms of these millennials are bearing the burden more than the dads when their kids move back home.
