What is the best way to gently let your grown up children know that it might just be time to move out and find a place of their own? I am talking about those in their twenties and thirties who seem to want to stay with Mum and Dad for as long as possible. Tongue in cheek answers particularly welcome.

I guess you don't live in a small 3 bed semi Neetuar! I do think that it's important for people to learn their own lessons as well, not kids, but people in their late 20's and beyond and sometimes that means striking out on your own.
Where I live doesn't matter here & you just needed some suggestions for your "grown up kids". And for whatever reason you want them to move out, you know the best way to tell them, which doesn't hurt them.
Sounds like you did the fair and right thing which, ultimately, worked out well for all concerned. We each find our own way of dealing with things and all know our own families best. Thanks for taking the time to provide an answer.
Thanks for answering, duffsmom. The question wasn't about my own personal situation, I am almost an empty nester - youngest leaves for University in Sept. I agree with you about the honesty, good answer.
It is hard these days for people to get on the property ladder, living at home can help them to save. I do think that a cut off time should be set by all parties. Be that twenty, thirty or, God forbid, forty! Thanks for answering.
