It is controversial issue that whether young adults live alone or live with their parents. Most of young adults want independence from their parents as soon as possible. However, it is not easy for them unless if they are ready for being alone. If I have two options, I would say that I want to live with my family as long as I can because of the following reasons; it can save my money, and it is safer than living without my parents. First of all, living with parents can save cost. If someone lives alone, he has to pay extra money such as accommodation, living expenses. If he lives with his family, he does not have to pay. I had to live alone because my university was so far from my parents house. At that time, I had to depend on my parents financial aid. It gave too much burden to my parents. I started to work but it was not enough for me since half of it had to be spent for paying my rent fee. Compared to my friends who live with their parents, I spent as twice as they did. Secondly, it is safer. Safety does not only mean physically but also mentally. Especially for a woman, living alone is too dangerous because the world is getting more and more violent and unsafe. Many serious crimes happened around us. Moreover, we can keep our healthy life easily if we live with our parents. Cooking at home is very difficult especially for the person who just started living alone. We can eat healthy home cooked food everyday and be taken cared by our parents whenever we are sick. Living without parents means we have to deal with everything by ourselves. For young adults, it could be dangerous because they are prone to be allured by junk food, bad life pattern, and bad people. It is true that living without parents can give freedom and protect privacy life. However, we have to compensate for that. We have to be free from parents pocket money and we have to control ourselves from any other situation. We need span for preparing to be alone.
