  • Sit your son down and explain things. And if he doesn't agree, be prepared to kick him out. Sorry but 19 yrs old, no GED, and not giving you any my house his butt would be out on the street.

  • I seriously do NOT understand ADULT kids. They are sooo spoiled & self centered that they don't even care about their parents! I would INSIST on him paying rent! Don't be afraid, just lay it on the line or he can move out. YOU need help! I am sooo sorry, Mama

  • most kids forget that there more people that live at home he needs to hear whats real going on in the house tell him yes he will get mad but to be adult you have act like adult .you are the mom you can change the rules any time so start changing the rule
    1-to live in this house you will have to pay rent
    2-if you don't like the rules the door swings both ways in and out
    3-if you stay you must help out thats how family works
