All My Children

All of your children leave home, eventually. If you are lucky, they leave home for the "last time" before they turn thirty. Recent statistics show that the average age a child leaves home for the last time is 28. At least, those were the statistics before the current recession. When some statistician recalculates the numbers ten years from now, the average age might well be even higher.

I ran into a couple who have been my long-time friends of some thirty years at a classical music concert at a local community college recently. Their two "boys", who are quite intelligent, are now 29 and 26....and, after years of college and graduate school, both are currently guessed it, at home.
