Why is the trend for adult children not to move away?
I've got 4 sons (32-24). Two live with the wife and I, and while I appreciate the fact that we can help them in some way, one's motivation for moving out seems nil.
One is and has been on his own for many years (married with 3 kids), one just moved out again after getting his finances in order and we're happy for him. One just finally sealed the deal on a job that he's been working on for months and will move out in 3 weeks.
The remaining one, with his wife and child, seems content living at home. I couldn't do it. In fact, when I retired from the Air Force and was looking for a job we lived with my in-laws for 9 months. Love the outlaws, but I WANT TO BE ON MY OWN!!!
What's with "kids" today that they won't step up to the plate and move on?
And yes, we could toss them out...and it might come to that...but the self motivation isn't there. Last thing I've ever wanted was my parents or in-laws being in the middle of what's going on in our lives unless invited.
