You can go home again! Boomerangers are on the rise. Named for the nearly eighteen million 18- to 35-year-old Americans currently living at home, this rapidly growing phenomenom is becoming a way of life for many college graduates and adults looking for a rent- and hassle-free way to get out of debt and plan a course of action for their futures.
Written by Elina Furman, who happily survived living at home the second time around, this timely, information-packed guide offers Boomerangers -- both practicing and aspiring -- wisdom on how to cope with the practical, economic, emotional, and psychological realities of moving back in with Mom and Dad. Furman debunks popular myths, such as that college graduation marks the beginning of domestic and financial freedom, and offers dynamic action plans, proven strategies, and practical advice on:
  • Taking the plunge -- are you ready to move back home?
  • Making a financial plan and sticking to it
  • Discovering the hidden benefits of living at home
  • Determining whenter you have a Cool, Reluctant, or Perma-Parent
  • Maintaining privacy
  • Setting and following house rules
  • Handling the stigma
  • Dealing with sibling rivalry

With special chapters on brainstorming new career objectives and dating under your parents¹ roof, and featuring inspiring tales from the trenches by independent and successful Boomerangers, Boomerang Nation proves that not only can you go home again, you can survive and thrive there.
