" Is the priority of expenses the real problem here?"
I think it's "getting used to a lifestyle" which is a lot nicer when you don't have to pay rent, utilities, streaming, internet, etc.
I also know a lot of parents who never got out of the habit of paying for their kids' cell phones.

It's true that many families continue their family plan, particularly as the parents are dependent upon contact with the kids. Grandparents are often "useful to a child's lifestyle", I've heard.
@#4 ... I think it's "getting used to a lifestyle" ...
Perhaps we both said similar things. :)
OK, stated differently, are millennials having difficulty separating from parental backing?
Maybe they should be just kicked out of the house and made to realize what they are up against for the rest of their lives?

So, they are moving back in with their families and you advocate shunning them "for the rest of their lives?"
Unless they are time traveling the assumption is that the expenses are what they are up against and will always be up against.
And this changes what about their parents? Their expenses? You presume that this is a wholly selfish arrangement..
If you are a time traveler you would be a Master.
