I let my 16 year old move out.....

Of the house and into the guest house. She was saying she wanted more freedom and was thinking about moving out and in with friends. 

I really didnt like that idea at all so we came up with the plan of her moving into the guest house. She has to pay rent and all utilites. She still has some rules to follow like being home at a decent time, no sleep over guest, no house parties, not being loud, etc. 

She has done really great so far and hasnt wanted to move back in the house. Of course I think it would be better for her living in the house but this is a better compromise than her just moving out on her own.

We had this arrangement but the opposite. We took the guest house and let the kids have the main house. It worked out great and none of the kids took advantage.

How much is rent?  Is she paying for her food?  What kind of job does she have?

$500. She pays for her own food except sundays when all my kids come to dinner. 

She is currently working as a dog groomers assistant/ being trained to become a dog groomer.

Interesting. Is she still in school? I wouldn't let it happen with mine but it sounds like you know what works for her.

Why did you take the guest house instead of your kids
