    I think there are a couple of reasons which explain this phenomenon, firstly is more difficult to leave the parent´s house due to the difficult to buy or rent a house- The reasons are the high prices on the real estate and the decrease of salaries.
    On the other hand a high percentage of youg people prefer to live with his parents because they seem and feel themselves like kids, they aren´t hurry to look for his adult life. The parents seem aren´t not interested in thath his kids are getting a life as adults.
    In my opinion the result of this situation will be bad for everyone: Grandparents living like if they´re 20 years yonger and kids living like babys.
    Summarizing nobody want accept the real age.
