Remember when it was considered a bad thing to move back in with your folks?  According to a new survey, statistically, you’re the weird one if you’re an adult who ISN’T still sucking money out of your parents.

This is crazy . . . but in a national survey of mothers ages 46 to 65, more than HALF say they’re currently supporting their adult children financially.  MORE THAN HALF.  The MAJORITY of middle-aged parents are still supporting their adult kids.

31% of the mothers surveyed said they’re supporting their adult child but expect them to become independent soon.

12% say they’re supporting their adult child but aren’t sure when they’re going to become independent.

And 9% say they’re supporting their adult child and expect to keep supporting them INDEFINITELY.

Added up, that’s 52% supporting their adult child.

86% of the mothers surveyed said they were independent of their own parents by the time they were 25.
