It's not as easy as it sounds. I'm about to be 21 and I just graduated from college. I'm still living with my parents and I'm going to do so while I'm in grad school. Living with parents sounds bad but it's 2016 and the cost of living is terrible. Living with my parents is more cost efficient than taking out MORE student loans. 40 year olds living in their parents basement doing nothing but playing on the computer have given it a bad rep but there is seriously nothing wrong with it. I have a job, I pay my car insurance and car payment every month, and my own gas and things I want like clothes, going out, etc. It's not bad but everyone is different. Good luck when you get older. It's hard.
I think you guys misunderstood me. I'm 21 years old and just graduated college and I'm on the terrifying journey that is job hunting. I get it. I just mean that as soon as I'm good, I'm out. Because I don't want to be the kind of kid whose parents post an fml about them because they're so lazy they can't even look for a job.
Girl I completely understand! I had a huge fear of being in my late 20s/early 30s living with my parents because that's what most of my siblings did. Luckily I took initiative & moved out 2 weeks after I turned 18. 1 year later here I am still doing fine. It's hard work but it's well well worth it!
I moved out early when I was a teen. I fucked up and ended up right back where I started. I'm now 23. One if the best things you can do is make the most of the time you have at home to ensure you set yourself up to be in a good position when you do leave to make sure you don't end up back.
When you get a job you earn money so you can buy things you need and want. Apparently he's only buying things he wants but it's also his money to do with as he please. Give him a little push and hopefully that'll make him save his money for what he needs.
Does it matter for what reason he's getting a job? Be proud he took the responsiblity to buy his own shit.
