Tell us: have you moved back in with your parents during the pandemic?

We would like to hear from people who have returned back to their parental homes during the pandemic

Traditionally, the boomerang generation – young adults who live with their parents after living alone – has been made up of people who are in their early 30s or under. But during the pandemic, many more have returned back to their parental homes – as couples or as older adults with children themselves, as well as various other setups.

We’d like to hear from readers who have found themselves in this situation. We’re particularly interested in hearing from families that are multigenerational, families where the children are older (40+), and families who have made the decision to move back in together for health or disability reasons. What have you learned from moving back in together, and has the experience been a positive one?
