I would be curious to see how many of the children who grew up in cohousing come back to cohousing or some form of cooperative living at some point in their lives. It does not surprise me that there aren't a lot of twentysomethings in cohousing. The only twentysomething homeowners I have known where a couple of people whose parents bought them a house to live in in college.. I do know plenty of younger folk who live in cooperative households,or communes where ownership was not the norm. My partner spent most of her childhood in a household consisting of herself, her mother, and a long term housemate. She and her mom are still in contact with several of the housemates over twenty years later, and consider them family. For her cohousing is a way to return to the values she grew up with. Incidently, while not in her twenties, she is the youngest adult member of our community. We don't have anyone between the ages of 13 and 35 at the moment.
