A young character for some reason can't stay with parents or legal guardian (for any reason from AbusiveParents to letting him stay in school while the parents must go elsewhere), or just wants to spread his wings, but (being too young for the wide world) can't have his own place yet. Friends or more distant relatives provide a home. This trope is often used to avoid having a MinorLivingAlone and works to separate a character from their birth family without stretching SuspensionOfDisbelief too far. A convenient way to give two young characters a way to stay together, and to have one character escape parental influence. May also be a way to evade the DepartmentOfChildDisservices. Since SocialServicesDoesNotExist, this may be the only way to escape AbusiveParents or ParentalAbandonment. PrettyFreeloaders is a variant for older characters in the HaremGenre. It can be used to introduce a NaiveNewcomer to a QuirkyHousehold.

* May not count, but after his father died, [[{{Batman}} Tim Drake]] didn't want to be put into foster care or be adopted by Bruce, instead wishing to be emancipated. Since he was too young, he instead hired an actor to play his father's brother and act as guardian while he lived elsewhere with Batgirl.
