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.
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.
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.
