My daughter graduated college in May and has been living back at home. She is not very happy about it but knows she has no option. She has found a job and will be applying to grad school for the fall. Hopefully after a year she will have some money saved up to live on her own. All of her high school friends are back at home. One of her college friends is living in NYC yet the father is paying her way. Her friend doesn't even have a job yet. (I don't quite understand this situation...).
How do many kids afford to live on their own right after college? Does anyone have kids or have had kids in same situation that could offer suggestions?
