The slow creep of extended childhood
Some parents are codependent with their kids, and vice-versa. The unspoken thing in the article is that the economic clout of younger people has shrunk and shrunk -- now it's the people in the late stages of their careers that make the money. And with the cost of higher education so expensive, and the newfound dependence on school loans, adulthood for people seeking upper-level degrees can feel like it doesn't come until the mid-30s. It all makes me a little depressed.
