And you thought you were rid of them...

Posted Dec 03 2010 5:45am

Mug New statistics show that record-breaking numbers of adults are returning to the family home because they are unable, or, in some cases, unwilling to pay for their own place.

Government figures indicate that the percentage of men in their 20s living with their parents has increased from 59% to 80% in the past 15 years, while the number of women has risen from 41% to 50%. ­

Psychologists have even begun to identify the different types of adult child returning to the family nest, giving them names such as the 'Mummy's Boy', the 'debt-ridden student', the 'perpetual child' and the 'cash-strapped business woman (or man)'.
