A USA Today article about the effects of what families are doing in response to the economic recession and increased housing costs quoted Christine Burgoyne, a public service associate in learning services at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education.
Speaking about how she and her husband decided to move in with her daughter and her children, Burgoyne said: “First thing we did is we made a list of what our criteria would be. We wanted separate quarters. . . (and) a neighborhood where the kids could play outside,” she said. “So far, it’s been really good. I don’t spend much time upstairs at all but the kids spend an awful lot of time downstairs.”
