so my husband and i have a friend that just turned 18 and she is in need of a place to live and start over. so we said it would be OK for her to come and stay with us. her family is not really what i would call a family, dads a truckers and been though 2 marriages now and mom is quite a piece of work too. she has 4 kids but never wanted any, shes kicked the girl out a lot and sent her to homes for problem kids there's nothing really wrong with her. she told her she shouldn't date a 22 year old when she was 15 and with the same had said date this 26 year old over there.
well now shes coming to live in a real home with us we do lots of family things and have a young son (2) what i want to know is what are good rules for her to have in our home to help put her on a good path. she has asked for our help. i don't want to treat her like a child but she still needs some guidance.
Honey, if she just turned 18, that is a very unwise thing to do. She is not a child. She is now an adult. She needs to either go to college full time, or get a full time job and support herself. I believe, by asking her to live with you, she will feel like she does not need to even try to support herself. Instead, I would have helped her get a job, a deposit and first month's rent together instead. She is only going to be trouble for you. Not only that, but do you really want an 18 year old in the house with your husband while you are not there? If she had no upbringing, she may not know how to act around men.
