Boomerang Kids

According to a Kiplinger article, more than half of all college seniors make at least a pit stop back in the nest before starting their adult lives. To be honest, I think this has been true for almost every person I know.

My own stop was probably shorter than most, one month, but I know several friends and family members that have been back with the parental units for a year or more. While I think it's a pretty savvy move financially, there are many landmines to avoid, such as: not taking advantage of your parent's generosity, not becoming a burden, and not acting like you are 13.

I would love to hear some people's experiences from going home after college. Was it a good experience for you? How long did you stay? Are you glad you did it?
