"Cinderella": More and more children are living at homeBummer children across Europe: what could be the reason?


"Kids have flown out" - this is becoming less and less heard at home. Instead, we had to make friends with a new word: "boomerang".

"Cairn" phenomenon: more and more children are living at home

The term "boomerang" is used for young people who, even in their 20s and 30s, do not leave their parents or return after a longer or shorter stay. Young European adults always have in that case, you will not be able to move into your own home or apartment. The time of the beginning of the life of life has been significantly extended in Hungary over the past decades.
The "kidnapped" significance is all over Europe: one of the most comprehensive surveys in 28 countries the proportion of young people between 18 and 30 years old with their parents increased to 48% by 2011 (36.7 million people). The fact that nearly half of young European adults live with their parents is also linked to increased unemployment and financial disadvantages associated with it. But there are some who are simply trying to settle down and give up grace.

Childrens child: long extended childhood

In Hungary, the average age of beginning a life of life has also been significantly extended: according to the CSO's 2011 data, nearly one-third (31%) of those aged 20 and 39 live with their parents in Eurostat, and the Szekler House.
Comparatively, it is much higher than in the Scandinavian (20-22 years) and Western European countries (24 years), but lower than a few in the Eastern and Southern European countries (29-31 years). The CSO data show that in Europe, she lives with her parents in Denmark at least 20-39 years (7.6%), while she lives most in Slovakia (50.5%).
According to TORRI's analysis, between 2008 and 2012, the proportion of 18- to 34-year-olds living at home in Hungary increased from 56 to 66%. In terms of gender, Hungarian males fly an average of 30, while women fly 27 years old: this also reveals that girls generally marry at a young age.
