My 24 year old son is moving home in a couple of weeks. Because he is working full time and going to school, he just cannot afford living on his own and paying for school. We discussed the ground rules prior to him moving in. He knows I love him very much, but I am done taking care of him. We have been empty nesters for a few years now. I am sure a few feathers will be ruffled, but it takes knowing you must smooth them out each day. My husband is his step-
father, and we discussed everything before hand also. No wonder that ladies husband is complaining night and day...I would be complaining too! My son is going to be paying a small amount to live here.I will of course put that money away and give it to him when he graduates. (shhh, he doesnt know that part). I might be writing back soon to ask advice on how to deal with it..but I think we have laid good ground work. Keep up the good advice.
Thank you for your kind words. I hope that everything works out for you. Keep in touch.
