The trend of adult children moving back in with their parents in order to survive financially.

Have you noticed more adult children are moving back home   with their parents? I have. I have 4 adult

children that have moved back home for periods of time over the last 2 years. It seems that they are not

      reason. For a young person with little to no working experience it is difficult for them to obtain

      Employment in a workforce that has little to no jobs available.
