Would you....

let one of your DS's friends "bunk" at your house (in DS's room) for a month or less. They are both 18, have known the kid for 6 years, he works and will pay a minimal rent, and feed himself.

  • Probably...when I was 17 my best friends James' foster mother died and he had nowhere to go, my mother offered to let him live with us for awhile (she's known him since he was 14) and it was fine...he respected the rules of our house and he was able to finish out school....he still considers my mother his "real" mom =)

  • Personally, we don't have the room...but if we did, and the friend was responsible, I would allow it.

  • Yep. I have. I had one boy whose mom really didnt do anything for him. I homeschooled my son who was his age and he asked me if I would homeschool him too since he quit high school. I did. He stayed with us for about a year until he finished his course work for a HS diploma, then moved out.

  • Yep and I've done it. Parents didn't actually want the kid at home. I establish some absolute rules and said as long as he followed them he could stay. Didn't last for more than a week or so..
