So after 81 posts, it's obvious that the people posting in this thread, including myself, are not in this new group of people who stay with the parents until their late 20s or later. I guess they're all ashamed to jump in and post. Or Dad put a lockout on the computer

I was 25 when I got my first real job after I graduated with my degree in college. If I did not get a job that was over an hour away from where my parents lived, I probably would have stayed.

I was mid 20s, nothing to be ashamed of if staying later until you move out.

I know I can always go back to my parents if I fall on hard times. It's good to know I'm welcome

It's been a long time but 18!!! Left for the college dorm a month after I turned 18 and I'm 56 now. It was one of those teeny, tiny rooms -- just enough space for 2 beds bolted to the wall and two spaces for what passed as desks.

I posted earlier that I lived with my parents until I was 26 (temporarily left for college inbetween, but came back). I'm not ashamed of it at all. I'd be ashamed if I freeloaded off of them... but I paid rent.

See, but again, you and I and it seems most of the posters here are the exception to the prevailing trend.
I moved out during college. You stayed longer but PAID RENT.
It appears a lot of young people today seem to stay at home far into their late 20s and even longer, and don't usually pay rent, but are supported or at least partially supported by the parents.

FYI, I'm in my later 20s now. So I don't consider those other people younger people.

Then you definitely seem to be an exception among your generational cohorts!
