Boomerang Generation
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings

This week's episode of "Beyond the Headlines" discusses the Boomerang Generation, a new wave of college graduates who, for a number of reasons, are moving back home with their parents.

According to a poll done in May 2011 by the National Endowment for Financial Education, 40% of American adults age 18-39 either live with mom and dad, or have done so in the recent past.

Today's guests are community leaders who will discuss this new trend and how it affects parents across the Bay Area.
