Mum (or Dad’s) cooking and wine cellar laid on, the comforts of home, the laundry done, a car to borrow, and for some, air conditioning and a pool — all at a peppercorn cost. Australia’s 1.4 million KIPPERS (Kids In Parents’ Pockets Eroding Retirement Savings) know they’re on to a good thing. So, in many cases, do their parents, who prefer sharing their homes with their 18 to 35 year-old offspring, delaying the onset of empty nest syndrome. Multiple bathrooms, mobile phones, personal entertainment devices and more liberal attitudes to kippers’ guests help lessen the potential for tensions.
