my 24 year old unemployed son lives in my home with me and my partner. There are lots of angry issues between my son and my partner involving lots of testosterone putting me in the middle. How do I set bounderies?Answer Question
your son needs to understand that he is a guest in your home. You need to sit him down & explain to him that he IS your son, but he is an adult now & your house is not his house anymore. Your house is your house & your partners house, not his. Tell him if he can't respect boundaries in the home, then he needs to leave. This is when you also write up a contract. You put the rules on it & expect everyone to abide by them. Have them both sign it. This will help him understand where his boundaries are. But, first off...he needs to know that he is an adult & he is in your home. He needs to have respect for everyone else living there, or he needs to leave.

Perhaps family counseling out help. Part of the problem is your son not having a job and isn't kept busy enough.
