Parenting corner: Letting college graduates move back home not a good idea

Q: What, if any, ground rules can and should parents set for a child returning to live at home after college graduation? My husband and I are facing this issue with our daughter in May 2010, and we need help. A: A recent (Dec. 10, 2009) Charlotte Observer article told of a 26-year-old Duke University graduate student who lives in his van, parked on the edge of campus, in order to finish school debt-free. He uses public facilities for all of his hygienic needs, eats lots of peanut butter, and cooks on a camp stove. He works part time during the school year and full time as a park ranger in the summer. Ken Ilgunas is one resourceful guy. He could probably make a decent living for himself going around the USA doing workshops for college students on how to successfully emancipate on less than $10 a day.
