"Son, do you mind if your mother and I crash in your basement for a little while?"  shades  "ummmm....Yeah!"


By Greg Toppo and Anthony DeBarros, USA TODAY

In the 1990s, your family came for dinner. Now they're moving in.

The number of parents, siblings and other relatives who live with adult heads of households grew 42% from 2000 to 2007, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Leading the way: parents, up 67%, to 3.6 million.

The figures suggest it isn't only elderly parents moving in. The number of parents under 65 in these households increased by 75%, and those 65 and older were up 62%. Both groups outpaced the increase in the number of people in family households overall, which is up 6% since 2000.

"This is just a major trend," says Stephanie Coontz, a family history professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash., who directs research at the Council on Contemporary Families.

 Well, I wouldn't have to worry about my parents moving in.  I'd be scared to death if they did though.

Yes, I love my parents dearly, but it's not fun living with extra people in your house.
