This is what I just told my son. He graduated high school in 2012. He said he wanted to take a year off. I told him that he could live at home for the next year if he paid rent (which I would put into an account for him for tuition) and helped out around the house but only for that year.

Well now the year is up and I told him if he didnt enroll in college or even a trade school he would have to move out.

He told me I am being really unreasonable I dont think so at all

I think that's fair. I wish my parents would have pushed me to go to college a little.

I agree with you and he probably will too one day when he is a parent and can see what is on the line.

nope. i never took off a year. he needs to do something with his life. The longer he stays out of school the harder it is to go back

Not unreasonable at all. The best thing you can do is stick to the original agreement.

Make him move.  They really need to learn how to live as an adult.
