Despite the noteworthy proportion of children who reside in multigenerational households, relatively little is known about how this family structure influences child and adolescent wellbeing. We use 18 years of data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) in conjunction with latent growth curve regression models to assess the extent to which multigenerational coresidence during childhood impacts psychological distress through adolescence and young adulthood. Moreover, we investigate whether this effect depends on the duration or timing of multigenerational coresidence. Although adolescents who lived with a grandparent during childhood have higher initial depression (CES-D) scores, the rate at which these scores decline is significantly faster than adolescents who never lived with a grandparent. Children who were exposed to multigenerational coresidence during their first year of life experienced particularly rapid increases in psychological functioning, suggesting this period of the lifecourse is critical when considering the effects of family structure on wellbeing.

Rates of coresidence between young adults and their parents have increased in recent years. Past studies have considered predictors of coresidence, including economic characteristics, demographic characteristics, and parental characteristics. Yet few studies consider the role of health, and specifically the interplay of parents' and adult children's health. In this study, we analyze the NLSY79-YA and NLSY79 (N=3,516) with hazard models to examine how the health of adult children, their mothers, and their fathers shapes risk of exiting parents' household as well as the risk of "boomeranging" back into the parental home. Results indicate that health outcomes operate in different ways; mothers' and children's worse mental health increase the risk of a child moving out, but mothers' health limitations decrease risk of moving out. Further, health operates differently for re-entry compared to exit-- for example, children's health is associated with risk of moving out but not risk of reentering parents' home.

Boomerang Kids and Mother's Health: Do Young Adult Residential Patterns Predict Maternal BMI Trajectories during Midlife?

Using data from NLSY79 and growth curve models, this paper examines how young adult's residential biography in their transition to adulthood matters for mothers' BMI trajectories in midlife. Compared to mothers whose children followed a "normative" leaving home pattern (left and never returned), we find that mothers of the boomerang kids had higher body weight primarily due to their lower sociodemographic status. Mothers to the young adults who never left home had very high baseline body weight but their weight seems to decrease at a faster rate than mothers of the boomerang kids.
