See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
DD will be home from college in one day and I can't wait! But, on the other hand I am not looking forward to the bullshit of a 19 yr old. LOL.
Do any of you Moms of college kids set rules for the summer when they are home such as a curfew? Giving them chores to do?
I know she's been coming and going as she pleases at school and when she was home on Christmas and Spring break, she went out every night and "supposedly" came home at curfew, but I'll never know since I was asleep. So I know she'll be looking to stay out later or sleep at a friends house. I just don't want to fight with her about stupid things.
Any advice? Thank you :)
5/9-- UPDATE: Is it normal for a 19 yr old to be going out somewhere with friends EVERY night of the week? I see this as a problem since I think she should be home a couple of nights a week. So I don't want to be a tyrant and set a curfew, but going out every night until whenever seems excessive. My DH already is voicing his rules on what she will pay us
for room and board insurance and phones, etc. and she should have a curfew, and yada, yada, yada which I don't agree on 100%. I guess we will try the no curfew, show respect route, if she abuses it we can always impose a curfew, right? Thank you ! great advice!
