What would you do if you're on a tight income and you're a single mom..and your 20year old son got a part-time paying $400 a month..

And you've asked him to help out for 2 months already but he spends all his money on dumb things like games and figurines...

Would you kick him out? Or what other things woul you had done before kicking him out...

*update* To clarify, he is not in school. And he doesn't help with anything. No groceries, no gas for getting dropped off/picked up at work. Everytime I ask for money, he gives such a rude reply and always sighing...and I pay for his phone...

I don't know how he will live off $400 but, I've tried talking to him already...every pay checks it just all goes on his toys... I'm at my wits end. He needs to learn to be independent. I'm giving him 30days to help or move out. I'm sure he can go rent with his friends and get more hours at work or find a second job.

My 20 year old lives with me and has a part time job. I don't make him pay anything.

No. My child is allowed to live with me as long as he wants. I would rather him save his money than be struggling.

I would boot him out. I've watched my brother play my mom and dad like that, he's 34 with no job now and has never left home.

I would kick him out and live in a roommate that wants to contribute to the household

I wouldn't make my son pay. I would never kick my children out of their home (because my home is their home)

In a heartbeat. I have no tolerance for kids who use and abuse their parents like losers. He would help pay his way or get out, period. I feel this way because he knows that you're a single mother, more than likely knows your financial situation and that you're struggling, yet still chooses to use you. Not cool.

Allowed and aloud
Learn the difference


Quoting lovemymini:

No. My child is aloud to live with me as long as he wants. I would rather him save his money than be struggling.

Is your income enough to live comfortably?  Sounds like the OP is not in a good place finacially her kid is an adult and she shouldn't have to support him.


Quoting: My 20 year old lives with me and has a part time job. I don't make him pay anything.
