The Perma-Parent Trap
By housing their twenty-something children and financing their lives, today's parents may be compromising their own.

By: Pamela Paul

There's always an explanation: A 22-year-old college 1. g _ _ _ _ _ _ _ wants to hold out for the right job rather than jump into an underpaid makeshift position. Rents are so inflated, a 2._ w _ _ _ _-s _ _ _ _ _ _ _ g moving out of her boyfriend's apartment couldn't possibly afford a place of her own. With two bedrooms to spare, 3. p _ _ _ _ t _ can rehouse the 4. k _ _ _ and everyone will benefit.


Whatever the reason, young 5. _ d _ _ _ _ are returning home in increasing numbers--following graduation, the dissolution of a 6. r _ _ _ _ _ _ _ s _ _ p or the loss of a job. They often live rent-free and subsidized, with no scheduled date for departure. However, while much attention has been paid to live-at-home "adultescents," little has been said about their parents, many of whom are Baby Boomers who greet their boomerang kids with open arms. For a variety of emotional and demographic reasons - their desire to be close with their kids, a yearning for 7. y _ _ t _ - many of today's parents are a bit 8. _ h _ l _ _ _ _ themselves (the original Peter Pan 9. g _ n _ _ _ t _ _ _) and just don't want their adult children to 10. _ r _ _ up.


Some argue that perma-parenting stems from the indulgence of an 11. _ m m _ _ _ _ _ and spoiled generation. Others blame the phenomenon on the heavy hand of social and economic forces, especially the current recession, and our very definition of 12. _d_ _ th _ _ _ is in flux - with a homestead no longer a key component of adult identity.
However, a rising chorus of psychologists and sociologists says parents simply aren't letting go when they ought to - not only impeding their children's 13. m _ t _ _ _ _ y but also hampering their own post-parenting lives. In the absence of an acute crisis or devastating financial setback, the consensus is that parents should look twice at the reasons why they continue to shelter their grown 14. _ ff _ _ _ _ _ _.
