Sons more likely than daughters to move back in with parents

Kids can be expensive, but a new study says having daughters will actually cost you less in the long run.

That's because boys are more likely to move back in with their parents. A new survey conducted by Harris Poll shows that daughters are less likely than sons to need financial help from mom and dad when they grow up. 

The survey found after the age of 18, daughters are less likely to move back home. The study also found that daughters are more likely to provide care for aging parents. 

But it's not all bad news for boys.  By age 45, the differences in financial independence between males and females do fade.
