I need some help! My adult daughter has moved back home with her 2 small children - going through a divorce
and she is very depressed. We agreed to let them move back home, but we are all in a fairly small house and we
are all feeling the pressure. Any suggestions? Moving at this time is out of the question and an addition to the
house is also not possible. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas to make this all work?

Also, have a room or time that is your own. And allow her to have somewhere she can go for a hour. The same for the kids. Letting all of you agree where the best place to play, what times the TV is available, what chores everyone will do together. Like making Saturday a cleaning day. After they get done cleaning, making waffles or chocolate chip pancakes. (Something fun for the reward) You can make a chart so everyone knows what is expected. Switch it around each week so there is variety. Have a fun night, a quiet night, a its your choice night, etc... making it fun instead of stressful for everyone! Hope these ideas help...
