4 year ago, when I was still a single mom, my parents moved to Washington State. My son asked if he could go with them and since he was going from middle school to high school I said yes. During this time I met and married my DH and this caused a falling out with me and my parent which is all together another story but it ended with my father telling me never to contact him or his wife (his words not mine) for anything ever again. Ok, so my son graduated this past June and is 18 years old. On Sunday, and I still don’t have all the details on what happen, my parents kicked him out. Here is the issue I am having now; I have 5 Ground Rules which are Curfew, Car (he won’t have one when he gets here), Rent (once he has a car and a job), Chores, and Guest. This I feel are flexible and can be changed at any time. I also have come up with some that are not so flexible, No bad talking grandparent or each other, stay out of each other room, don’t us each other electronics without permission, etc. OK yes there are 17 rules and some are silly and can be taken out, but my DH doesn’t think we should have any rules beyond the 5 ground rule. What do you think? Should we have rules for an 18 year old out of high school or not?
