Previous studies on emerging adults’ relationships with their caregivers have provided contradictory results: while some studies have found that emerging adults with close parent-child relationships lived closer to their parents, others found that they lived farther away. The current study examined the association between emerging adults’ living proximity from their primary caregiver and the level of emotional vulnerability in the parent-child relationship. Typical communication length between emerging adults and their caregivers was examined as a moderator. Data were collected from emerging adults ages 18-25 (N = 276) through an online survey method. Results revealed a significant positive association between emerging adults’ living proximity from the caregivers and parent-child emotional vulnerability. Length of communication was not found to be a moderator. Findings may help to inform interventions related to family communication, empty nesting, and life transitions such as children leaving for college. Further research is needed to determine how various reasons for leaving the parent home may moderate the relationship between the variables.
