OK, he's coming home for the holidays, he's sleeping in his brother's room who will be in bed by 10. I don't expect him to be in bed by 10, but we also don't want to be up late either and he's a night owl. I like my quiet time before bed, about an hour so around 10pm I retire to the basement (where I live) and then go to bed.
Should there be rules about bedtimes? I wonder if I can trust him to be considerate to his brother and sisters and not be l loud on the phone (his girlfriend works 2nd shift) or have the tv up too loud. Should I just let it go and see what happens or talk to him ahead of time?
I don't want to be overbearing and thrust a bunch of "commonsense" rules on him.
