Moving Home?

This question is for all adults who have lived on their own for a long period of time. Now that you have been living alone, is there any situation where you would move back home with your parents?

I'll be honest and if it's a choice between living with them and on the streets I'd debate for a bit but probably go live with them. That's about the only reason and even then I'd check with everyone else first before doing so. I know if I moved back I'd either end up in an insane asylum or jail within a year. That simple. I love my parents but that doesn't mean I like them and I can only take them in small amounts at a time.

I have the same feeling... I've only been home two weeks and I'm already thinking about murder. Not really but you know what I mean.

Oh yeah I do. Even spending a few hours with my parents is enough for me to think about it. I could imagine after two weeks I'd be plotting it out. More power to you.

Well, now I am in a situation that I could never move back home, as my Mom is not in the best of Health, and so she is living in a Nursing home permanently, but there was a time about almost 12 yrs. ago where I had just had a Miscarriage, and no where to live, so I ended up moving here to the Seattle area, and had to live with my Mom for a short while before I got my own place again. For me it was OK, but Thank Goodness nothing permanent. My mom and I do not see eye to eye on most things due to our Religious beliefs, etc.

I think that's going to be one of the battles over the next 6 months living with my parents... They are Jehovah's Witnesses... and I left... My mom of course, wants me to go back. And I'm into Buddhism and mediation and peace which freaks my mom out. I try not to talk about it, but she likes to preach at me.

This is a strange thought for me. The past few years I have been under a lot of pressure to move back to where I grew up from family members, which is strange for me because none of them wanted me as a kid! I can't imagine living with either of my parents, as I haven't really done so since I was a very young teenager. If I didn't have a child, I might say there were circumstances that might cause me to consider the notion, but they would have to be very severe circumstances considering the abuse I suffered. But since I don't trust anyone I am related to with my child, it's no longer an option at all.

Sounds like a bad situation... It's sad when you can't trust family with your kids.

If I couldn't provide for my children due to some financial disaster, then yes. However, not for long at all, just till we get back on our feet again. I think that would be the only reason.

I'd rather live on the streets than move in with those people thank you very much! I don't think there would be any circumstances that would induce me to go live with them. lol ;)

That would not be possible for me. My father has passed and my mother has remarried and lives in a place that does not allow children. Since I have seven children...I don't think it is possible that I could move in with her. But there was once 6 years ago when I did move in with my mother when I had 6 children and she was not remarried. That was because I had left my partner and had no place else to go. Would I ever do it again if the situation were different? No, I just couldn't! When you have kids...it changes everything! I have a certain way of handling my children and she has her way...we clash and it was not good!

I haven't liked home in about 8 years now. I've really liked being on my own, thoguh I will admit it's not without it's challenges, especially in the begining or being on your own. There is just so much to learn. I suppose it is nice knowing there is a safety net if something does go totally wrong. I guess some things that might make me move back home are if I ran into major finanical issues, or maybe if a family member was ill and needed help...but I hope none of these things ever happen of course.

Yes, I am trying to move and if I am ever able to save up enough money to go I will live at my parent's house until I find a place to live. They need me; my sister is acting like a jerk and wont take care of her kids, so my mom has one and the state took the baby(she has the WORST taste in men)when her "boyfriend" puched her out. Now she is living in a safehouse while she waits for the court date so the judge can decide if the idiot was really "defending himself" Feel free to donate to my paypal account.... HA HA HA
