July 16, 2012—“Trends of a new American super-family emerge” on MSNBC’s The Cycle with guest Saturday Evening Post writer Doug Donaldson.
“Adult children of boomers—famously overeducated and underemployed—have created a moving-back-home tsunami,” writes Donaldson in an article titled “The New American Super-Family” for the July/August 2012 issue of the Post. “The driving force behind this trend is financial pressure, particularly rising housing costs, health insurance premiums, and college debt.”
On The Cycle, Donaldson discusses how Americans are giving up the nuclear family and offers suggestions for a smooth transition into a multi-generational household.
In addition to contributing to the Post, Doug Donaldson has published articles in Better Homes and Gardens and Men’s Health.
