despite improving job prospects for college graduates, many are headed back to their parents' homes to save money. census bureau data shows one- third of 18 to 34-year-olds live at home. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to share some ground rules before you lay down the moving truck. all right, jill. so parents like to say, my house, my rules. i have said it many times. but when an adult moves back home -- [ laughter ] >> -- is that still the case? >> reporter: it is. you are moving into your parents' house. but here's the idea. both sides really need to review their expectations for this arrangement. you start with how long you expect this situation to last. and then what are we going to do about communication? do i get to nudge you if you come home late? like what are we doing here? so just agree to something. will those kids pay rent? will they contribute to the households in another way? maybe they will do grocery shopping, maybe they will mow the lawn. i don't know. but you got to talk about it. parents your goal isn't to soak your kids for money but you
want to foster good habits ultimately financial independence. hey, good news. kids may be a little more receptive. a bank rate study released this week found millennials think people should pay for their own housing at age 22 their own car at 20, their owe cell phone at 18 without the help of their parents. so that's good. once you decide what the ground rules are just put it in writing. you want to revisit it every three months. >> wow. that's surprising. 18, 22, still seems young but gives them that responsibility. so you say that some parents are putting themselves at risk with these kinds of arrangements. how? >> reporter: well, the problem according to certified financial planners is that there are some parents who are supporting their children to the point that they are putting their retirement at risk. so in some cases, to help carry the extra costs of those adult children, people are reducing their retirement contributions. this is happening at the very time when they should be increasing those contributions. even more dangerous, with the stock market higher housing
prices on the rise, there are some parents who are taking loans against their 401(k)s or refinancing their mortgages to help pay off student loans. now, look, every one of the these ideas can be worked out and can be okay. but they also can derail retirement plans at a time when your only choice may be to work longer and that's only if you are lucky enough to have a job or learn to live on a reduced amount of retirement income. so parents: here's what you're trying to do strike a reasonable balance between being there for your kids without putting yourselves in financial danger. >> that is good advice. all right. jill. they should at least vacuum and clean up if they are going to be living back at home. i mean, come on. that's easy. >> reporter: yes. >> jill schlesinger, thank you. ♪[ music ] time now 5:40. police say they finally caught the firebug who has been terrorizing east bay neighborhoods. >> plus, the next generation of selfies is here. we'll have more on the new 3d snapshots. >> and a live look at 880 in
