What is a boomeranger?

I just came across this term - boomeranger? What does it mean? Does anyone know? Thanks.

It usually refers to an adult child who keeps coming back to live with you because they can't make it work on their own.

OH - thanks for clarifying. I read this term in an article and had no idea what it meant.

Maybe that is good reason for people to downsize - so they won't have room for the "child" to come back and live with them...

Farmer Dad used to say that if you try to wean a calf at, say 6 weeks or a couple of months, you can accomplish the task fairly easily.

But if you wait till it's a year old, it'll break through walls of pens, jump fences or do whatever is necessary to get to its mother.
