  • Um, move out! You're 20, more than old enough!

  • PLEASE DONT TAKE THIS AS A BASH -




    THAT IS WHAT YOU GET FOR HAVING A CHILD AND LIVING AT HOME. MOVE OUT= END OF STORY.

  • Thats not an excuse. I moved out at 18 when I found out I was pregnant. Doing just fine. I am married now but I wouldn't ever raise my child in my parents house because they are like the parents all over again.. Move out if its that big of a problem to you, otherwise suck it up and deal with it. :)

  • I went through this to a certain extent while my (now) husband and I were in college, and both lived in our parents homes. i finally had to sit my mom down and tell her how i felt. She listened and realized, because of our situation, she didn't get to be the "spoil him rotten" grandparent cause at that moment in time she was helping to raise him. There is no excuse to teach a child not to listen to his parent, even if you live at home.

  • This is a difficult situation......grandparents want to treat their grandkids like grandkids. I agree with the other posters....it's time to move out. That way, you can be the PARENT and your parents can be the GRANDPARENTS!

  • I agree that it may be time to move out, but I myself have been a bad situation where i couldn't except it wasnt with my parents it was with my sister and brother-n-law. My mom died and i didn't know my dad that much but anyway, there is only a few ways to deal with this, talk to your family, if they don't listen, then it's time to start coming up with ways that you can move out and you can have all say so in the disciplining your child and giving your child what you want them to have. It's hard but it's best, or you just tough it out and deal with it.
