Increasing Self-Esteem/GETTING OLD


I was wondering would you agree that a person who is 30 years old or older and still living with his or her parents should have a say in weather he or she should stay at home or go on holidays with them?


Hi Cameron,

This is not easy to answer but this depends on your relationship with your parents. For most 30 years old, they live independently from their parents and one wonders why you are still living with your parents. I do not know of your individual circumstances, but any such problems should be discussed with a counsellor who would be more familiar with your situation.
