I have a son who is 27 years old. He and i did not speak for 2 years due to some conflicts he and i were having and he pretty much told me to stay out of his life, and that i was no longer his mother/family....Now, he has come back into my life, again and it seems nothing has changed. What i mean by that is that, i feel he has come back because he has no where to live, has no car, and has no job or money. I have bent over backwards to help this boy, in the past, and it has cost me a lot in my life. Now, I am allowing him to live with me, for the time being. Mainly because he is my son and i love him and want a relationship with him...
However, he takes things for granted when me and my husband buy food and groceries for the house. It's me, my husband and my 11 year old son. And instead of feeding for 4 people now, it's like i am feeding for 6. My 27 year old son eats for like, 3 people and not 1. I am on unemployment and my husband makes a good living..But, we are finding ourselves broke all the time. And the fun little McDonalds outtings we have once every couple weeks, we can't even do now. It's like our fun is limited due to our finances....I don't want to kick him out. But, i can't seem to get it through his head that he needs to find a job. I have told him to get a job and even given him a deadline to find one and have even taken him to get applications. Yet, here we are, 2 months later and he's still mooching off of us......
What can i do?.....Any thoughts?......
Sorry so long...
