The Stages of Moving Back with Your Parents

Moving back in with your parents after living as a grown up for some years is a psychologically fascinating experiment. Exactly how long will it take you to regress back to being a sullen teenager? Here are the steps you will take from moving in to moving out.

You realise you need to move back home

You see your old bedroom

imageimage

And fight with your sibling
imageimage

You “help” with shopping
image

But admire your work later

image

You try to discover common ground with your parents

image

Your mother tries to make you do housework
image

You tell new people you meet an elaborate lie about the converted warehouse you share with fashion bloggers and spies

image

Your mother politely asks if you would like dinner
image

You come home after a few drinks
image

And then have to try to sneak someone out in the morning
image

You start to enjoy your family bonding sessions
imageimage

Until your friends come over and make it clear they prefer your parents to you
imageimage

After a while you make it your home and ensure your parents feel like guests in it
imageimage

You realise how good you have it and never want to leave
image

But soon you get a job and can finally afford to move out
