Mature adults shouldn’t live with their parents

In my opinion the mature adults shouldn’t live with their parents. The boy who he has already 26 yeas old but still at home. I think this is a not good social trend. The children will never fully mature and become fully responsible as long as they are living at home letting 'mommy' and 'daddy' provide for them.

To begin with, some young adults don’t want to work and contribute at home when he lives with their parents. They depend on their parents even doesn’t pay room or board. It is a big problem for their family.

Secondly, there are many different hobbies and ideas between children and parents. It will be making too much noise and affecting emotion.

To sum up, when a child becomes an adult he needs to leave the nest and spread his wings in order to be able to accomplish on his or her own the art of living!
