James from Casually Explained (previously at Neatorama) gives young people a honest and detailed rundown on what it's like to move out of their parents' home. You'll only want to share this with your kids if they've already moved out, because it's pretty discouraging. When Baby Boomers moved out on their own, it was for the purpose of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, which kids these days don't do so much of. Also, we could find a place to live where the rent was only a week's income or less, if you weren't picky. Now the rental units are owned by Baby Boomers, and they demand exorbitant security deposits because they fear young tenants will act like they did at that age. -via Tastefully Offensive
