And, obviously being homeless is worse then living at home, but just because you some how thought that being homeless, would get you all those things, doesn't make living at home, positive. Living at home should never be more then a transitional phase. And obviously steve wasn't talking about people who take care of their parents, nor was he referring to people in a transitional phase of living at home.
Again, that's just a cultural decision we've made in America. And its because we have this image of the fat, lazy, non-contributing slob who lays in their parents basement eating cheetos all day.
Truth be told, lots of cultures thrive on creating deep family connections under one roof. And its not a measure of dependence or noncontribution. On the contrary, its just the opposite.
