The title of Sally Koslow’s book says it all: Slouching Toward Adulthood: Observations from the Not-So-Empty Nest is an investigation into the “adultescent” phenomenon. Koslow, a mother of two “adultescents” herself, explores the reasons behind the growing population of college graduates moving back home. Her findings reveal that prolonged dependency might not just be the young generations fault, but also the fault of their helicopter parents.
We have been drunk— not on alcohol, but on unreasonable expectations. For our lost kids at home, it’s time to dry up and move out.
