Moving Back In With The 'Rents
You walk across the stage, accept your college diploma… then head back to your apartment to pack up to move back in with your parents.
On Monday's Up to Date, we talk with psychologist Wes Crenshaw about the trend that’s increased in a sub-par job market and why many families are having difficulty adjusting.
We also look at why this isn’t so embarrassing in other societies around the world and get some advice for parents and their grown-up children who are in this situation.
