BTW: I like the top comment:
"Ugh, why are only the cringiest examples of multigenerational living ever shown in the media?
And only the freeloading adult kids, never kids supporting their parents or contributing equally. "
I do have to agree that there is a value judgement here that ignores the reality of various cultures.
WHITE children are expected to get out of the house and be on their own–even if they’re working. In probably any other culture, multi-generation living is accepted.
So if you’re white, you’re judged one way, but if you’re Chinese and living in your parents house (and working), that’s ok. If you’re Indian and living in your parents house (and working), that’s ok. If you’re Hispanic, and living in your family house with your parents AND their PARENTS, and your siblings, and working OR babysitting yours and other kids, you’re building up the family in the American immigrant dream.
But if you’re white, working, and home, you’re a bum.
