Karen L. Fingerman And Frank F. Furstenberg recently wrote in the New York Times about the bonds between today's young people and their parents:
"Just when parents thought they might finally be free of their children, many of this year's college graduates will pick up their degrees — and move back home. Even those who don't may continue to live off the parental dole; at the start of HBO's hit series 'Girls,' Hannah, played by Lena Dunham, is trying to keep the monthly checks from Mom and Dad coming. The fragile economy could exacerbate the phenomenon of delayed adolescence, keeping Americans in their late 20s and even early 30s dependent on their families for years."
