Home After College: "Whose Couch Is It Anyway?"

  Growing up isn't easy, and apparently, neither is moving out.

More and more young adults are living with their parents into their 20s and even 30s.

This might be typical in some cultures, but in America it's overhauling a family dynamic built on the promise of an empty nest for hardworking parents, and job opportunities for grown kids.

A couple of PhDs specializing in family counseling tracked five households as they grappled with this generation gap.

They wrote the book Whose Couch is it Anyway?

Phyllis Goldberg and Rosemary Lichtman stop by our studio to chat in advance of a reading set for the Ashland Branch of the Jackson County Library at 4 PM on Saturday, September 19.
