Doc Zone Generation Boomerang

After a childhood of overprotection, overindulgence, over-everything, today's young adults are finding the real world a little too real. So they're heading back home – if they left in the first place. Generation Boomerang examines the reasons why so many of today's young adults are slow to launch. A tough economy gets much of the blame, but a peek below the surface reveals that this is a generation reluctant to give up the comforts of home. Some parents welcome having their kids remain close, but for others this means bye-bye Freedom 55! Are we raising a generation of Peter Pans who will never grow up? Generation Boomerang explores how moms, dads and grown-up kids are negotiating this new living arrangement many experts believe is here to stay.
