If you’re a Boomer parent whose adult children are still living at home, you’re not alone. According to a recent study, one in three adults between the ages of 25 and 34 live with their parents.

However, if you’re ready for your children to move out, there are a few things you can do to gently encourage them.

Here are 12 tips:

If you make it too easy for your adult children to stay at home, they may be less likely to want to move out. Avoid doing things like paying their bills, cooking their meals, or cleaning their room.

Encourage them to get a job.
