If you haven't been been reading The Simple Dollar (and why not? I ask, since it is a wonderful blog!), you may have missed Trent's observations and questions about his grandmother who allows her adult son to live with her. The comments are just as thought-provoking as the original post, and yes, Grace added her two cents to the discussion.
Interestingly, when I submitted my post on The Grown-Up Kid Conundrum--Part Deux to this week's Carnival of Personal Finance, it was rejected as not being on-topic.
My guess is that it was just too personal a topic for the host--too much about emotions and not enough about money.
But nowhere do finances and emotions come together more clearly (or sometimes, more devastatingly) than when one is dealing with other family members.
