    If the eaglet is not pushed from the nest it won't learn to fly on it's own. A grounded eagle is a sad bird.

    This is a fabulous article. I think we are going to see more and more of this multi-generational housing concept that is growing. As the economy continues to weaken, as our money continues to destabilize we are going to see more and more homes with multi-generational families living in them.

    In Lithuania, a country I lived in for a time, there is no social security. The retirement system over there is parents live with children and provide free daycare for the grand children while the children both work full time to pay for the necessities and care fo the parents. That is retirement over there. Since America is becoming a third world country we should probably expect this to be the case for our retirement in the future.

    This of course is not good news for those few who refused to have children of their own.

    I love this article! My older kids keep asking questions like, "Now that I'm 19 do I have to have a curfew? When I come home from school do I have to do chores?" I keep telling them the privilege of living in our house requires following house rules.
