Drinking alone in their rooms.
...especially when that drink is their own tears.
Purchasing unnecessary things with the money they save paying minimal, if any rent.
An infinite supply of home-cooked meals.
Immediate parental assistance in solving life's biggest problems.
Spending hours looking at houses or apartments they will live in, one day.
Researching alternative roommate scenarios.
Hooking up in cars.
Discovering unexpected kinship with the successful and famous.
Their friends' couch.
...or any couch, for that matter.
But above all else, having the warm, loving embrace of family in close proximity at all times.
