3.13.13 … what’s that password? …

adult kids, digital apron strings, WSJ.com:  guilty!

Getting  grown kids out of the house these days is hard enough. Nudging them off the family cellphone plan—or out of an iTunes or Netflix NFLX +3.80% account—can be even harder.

For increasing numbers of parents, the question of how much support to provide an adult child is no longer just about rent subsidies or car payments. The calculation is now complicated by the new maze of subscriptions that allow even far-flung family members with the right password to piggyback on a parental account well into their working lives.

When it comes to the digital apron strings, awkward relationship moments can ensue as parents, say, find themselves chasing down grown children about data limits. Now that federal health-care legislation lets adult kids stay on their parents insurance plans longer, it seems 26 is the new 18.
