When Adult Children Move Back Home

Consider the Other Person's Perspective

Think about how your adult child may be feeling about the change and what brought it about. You didn’t fail as a parent because your adult child is returning home; nor did he or she fail as a person. Times are tough and circumstances change in everyone’s life. Be aware of what your new housemate may be sensitive to--or feeling badly about--in relation to the issues that resulted in your living as a unit now. Could be the inability to find a job, a job loss, financial downturn, divorce…whatever it is, bringing the subject up over and over serves no purpose.
