Hi Dr. Laura,
I listen to your podcast and I really enjoy your point of view regarding adult kids living at home. I have two sons ages 12 and 9, and even though they’re young we try to talk to them about what life will be like as they grow up. We talk about college, living at home or in the dorm, getting jobs etc. One of these conversations prompted my 9-year-old to ask the question “What happens if I don’t go to college and I don’t get a job?” My immediate response was “Then, I guess you’re going to be homeless.” My husband and 12-year-old son laughed, but you should have seen the look on my 9-year-old’s face! It seemed he thought we’d support him living at home no matter what!
Thanks for giving me the conversation starters that cause very entertaining moments in my family’s life.
