Adulting is hard nowadays. It’s very hard for kids. Job opportunities aren’t what they were. The economy is driving this trend.said Ripa. “I know that Michael graduated college in May of 2020 and he had a writing job lined up which evaporated because the pandemic shut down the production and it just never came back.

“所以, 你知道, we gave him a grace period of an additional year to find other job opportunities because it’s hard,” she said of her and her husband 马克康苏洛斯.

Along with Michael, Ripa and Consuelos are also parents to son 华金, 19, 和女儿 萝拉, 21.

Ripa went on to explain why she feels it’s aunique time right now to have kids in college.

I said to them, these are years that you won’t get back and this is a time where we won’t mind supporting you financially as long as you work — as long as you maintain a job for your add-ons, as I call them,” 她分享了.

The bells and whistles; the stuff that they want — as long as you work for that, we will cover the core expenses, but once you graduate, that’s over,” 她继续. “Because we were married at 25, 你知道我的意思? And we feel like because we didn’t have safety nets, we got something cooking.

I got new glasses and then my dad texts me, ‘Where did you get those glasses?’ ” Michael recalled. “我喜欢, '不好了, can you at least pick a different color?’ 我的爸爸, my brother and I will be wearing the same black pants and gray shirt and I’m like, I try to look a little different than that. I like to stand out a little bit.
