Long story short we kicked her out at 18 for a lot of reasons (some being that she was waking the whole house up when she came home, taking the car without asking, sneaking boys into the house). We gave her (too many) warnings and finally kicked her out

Well it has been a year and a half now and she is wanting to come back. The problem is I havent seen many changes in her yet that make me think she will follow the rules. She is having problems with her roommates and they dont want her living there anymore.

DH says we should let her move in but I told him hell no. I dont want to go through that whole process again.

She's your child come up with an agreement, have her sign it be sure to include repercussions in it. Such as extra chores for breaking the rules (if you do money you will never see it) start fresh with the relationship leave the past in the past and start building a better relationship with her.

BTDT minus the extra chore thing because she started refusing to do any chores at all.

We have been working on a better relationship but her moving in will just ruin that I think

Well I wouldnt give her the whole room for all her shit... When my teen moves out I plan to convert her room into a guest room. Moving home is and will be temporary situtation once you finish school or move out on your own. She would have to stay in the guest room as a GUEST.
