Ok here's the deal he works a part time job 20-30 hrs. a week and he thinks he shouldn't have to follow our house rules anymore, he thinks he shouldn't have to do household chores because he pays us rent money but he also complains that he has to pay us rent!!! He gets paid $400-$600 every 2 weeks, we charge him $50 a week( he says it's not fair that we take so much of his money) and that's for rent,cable,high speed internet, food, electricity,heat,hot water and we give him rides everywhere and I wash and dry his laundry, we do all the cooking as well !!!! I don't agree with my son and I'm getting frustrated, I wan't give him a dose of reality and have it out with him and tell him how I feel or I want to tell him he has 30 days to get out !Answer Question

Your rules or leave. If you talk to him and he doesn't listen give him the 30 days. I am going through this with my 20 year old stepson right now. He has been out of school for 3 years and it has been a constant fight with his father. We don't charge rent. He has been playing like a child. If I was his mom I would have said rules rent or get out. I just couldn't get his father to back me up. His father finally saw the light. My stepson signed a lease with his friend and moves out on the first. He seems excited and I think it will help him all around. Don't let it go on forever 20 years old is old enough.
