Subject: RE: BS: Nest - Empty or full?
My second-oldest nephew wouldn't leave, though he had a decent job and had finished the schooling he wanted.

One day, his father took him out to a decent trailer park and pointed out a trailer that was for sale. The kid was TOLD, in no uncertain terms, that he WOULD either buy the trailer and move out or he would be moved out -- he would find his belongings in the back yard and the locks changed.

He took the hint, took a loan to buy the trailer, and has been on his own now for over a year. He's doing fine, a welcome guest at his parent's house, and would never go (now) go back.

Everyone else in the family was and is anxious to get out on their own just as soon as they are able.

Maybe it helped that there were nine people living in a house with 1.5 bathrooms....
