You plan/figure out the details first - already have the place, move in date, and finances figured out. You better have 3-6 months emergency fund for all bills beforehand. Living on your own isn’t as great as it may sound

Do it respectfully, listen to their concerns.


No worries! They moved in because it wasnt safe in their area when covid started but its better there now than it is where i live


I moved countries by taking a job there. What PWC1 suggested would just add an idea in their mind for you to pay them rent

OP - if it’s safer where your parents used to live, I’d try to make the argument around their safety, and then add that you can’t leave because of something work-related or something so they don’t try to take you with them

Tell them you watched a Millennial Money video

You move out first
