In Canada? Watch it now – online at the Doc Zone site
51% of young Canadian adults aged 20 to 29 still live with their parents. Those numbers are even higher in some countries like Italy and Japan. In the UK, 1/3 of parents of young adults are remortgaging their homes to support their grown children.
There are indications that this global trend is more complicated than the economy…and here to stay.
With expert insight and humour, Generation Boomerang introduces us to families from around the world to explore why this is happening – and what it means for independence and our notion of ‘adulthood’.
