Would you let your parent come live with you? *ETA*
So here is my dilemma, he got laid off in early January and can't make rent. He has to move out by Saturday/Sundayand has nowhere to go. He is an only child and both his parents and grandparents have passed on. He has no friends to stay with either.
He has called and asked to live in his van in our driveway for 1-2 months while he gets back on his feet and hopefully starts working again. He would also be bringing his small dog, who is fine with kids and my cat but I do not have a fenced in yard, and his unemployed girlfriend who is also looking for work.
He would need access to my house 24/7 for the bathroom and kitchen. He would also use my laundry facilities and internet. He also would be plugged into a power outlet. I don't have room for them to sleep in my house.
Would you let this happen? How would you make it work? If not, why not?
ETA- The girlfriends had Been around maybe 5 months and he won't come without her because she had nowhere to go either. All of her family is in California and we are in Washington.
He wasn't a "great" dad growing up, in fact we had a lot of issues, one of them being he told me he was having an affsir and wanted to divorce my mom but that I had to keep it a secret until he could get around to telling her. I was 15! The girl he was sleeping with was 18!!! Since then, we have never been close and he sees nothing wrong with his actions. A few years ago, I had an emergency and needed somewhere to live asap and he wasn't there for me, because his dogs (he had two different dogs at that time) didn't like kids. This was a serious emergency where me and my kids were in danger. There is a lot of history there.
He also has had more than 30 jobs in my 25 years of life and seven of those years he didn't work. Hee had told me he is applying for a lot, but he refuses to make under a certain amount because half is taken out for child support (he owes my mom over $100,000 in back child support).
I would help my mom, always, but with him.... i'm just unsure.
