Multi-generational housing is becoming more common in the country as full-time employees ask their parents to move in and help take care of the children, instead of spending money on a day-care service. According to an MSNBC segment, 2.8 million people live with their adult children in the United States and help take care of their grandchildren, the highest number in three decades. In two-parent homes, the number of grandparents moving in has doubled since 2006.
