My son has not held down a long term job in years. I am moving in a week. I told my son that he would need to have a job and be willing to pay rent or he would have to stay elsewhere. 4 weeks ago I gave my son a 5 week window to extensively look for work. He has not been looking. Instead he has been hanging out with his friends, partying, and letting them sleep all over my house, after I have gone to bed, and specifically after I told him that my home is not a hotel, but he continues to do it anyways. He text messaged me and said that he has decided that he is going to back to school to get his diploma. This is a week before I will be enforcing the consequence of not looking for job, putting him out. I feel like he is trying anything he can to not have to stay elsewhere and it sounds like it's in lieu of a job, too. Sounds like manipulation to me. Any one have any experience with this? thanks!Answer Question

I have to agree with the other moms on this. Son is using you and doing anything he can think of to not grow up and be an adult. He is going to have to learn the hard way. Sorry, I know you probably don't want to do that, but it needs to be done. GL.

Let him know your glad he's going back to school. Maybe offer to help him do his laundry once a week since he is going to be so busy working to pay his way somewhere besides your house and going to school. Perhaps it would be good for him to return to college at a school with dorms. My parents kicked me out when I was 19. I had no car, no money, no job, and no place to go. My only skills were opening a beer bottle with a cigarette lighter & rolling a mean joint. The deadline came & I was out. I found a place to go real quick & got my act together.
