Do you agree that it’s important to live close to your parents?
I agree; it is definitely better to live close to your parents than far away from them.
Most significantly, living near to your family can be a backup plan and a helping hand. I can't tell you how many mornings coworkers have casually — but gratefully — mentioned that their dad helped shovel out their driveway; or their mom gave them a ride when the car wouldn't start; or their aunt is taking care of their sick child so they don't have to miss work. It seems that, within reason, having extended family nearby means there's always someone around to help.
Moreover, it's a remedy for homesickness. When I am far away from home and need a hug from a family member but can’t have one, I can either toughen myself up and get on with it, or curl up in a duvet with junk food and feel miserable. Finally, the latter option always wins. This isn’t a problem when you live in close proximity.
