The complications of being an adult child
“Adult child” is not an offensive term, suggesting you’re immature. It’s just what you are, in the eyes of your parents. You are an adult, but you’re still their child. And research has found that it’s quite common for parents to develop some sort of tension with their children as those children become adults. Some of the more common things that cause tension between adult children and their parents are finances, education, and health. Having some conflict, when it comes to discussing how you make money with your parents, is pretty normal.
