Is it normal to still be dependent on your parents after graduating from college?

1 Answer

Answer :

Yes, it’s normal. Hopefully, it won’t last a year. I’m sure you’ll get a job before a year. Save up your money while living at home and then you can move out once you have a few thousand saved. Even living there a year isn’t abnormal, but I think you’ll get tired of living there probably. Did you live at home while in school?
