How to Prevent Adult Children Living with You

blueheron

If you and your spouse are of retirement age, move to a retirement community. Only two related people are permitted to live in a villa or cottage. That way, your adult children can't move in with you....LOL

funny post but I agree with sushipup1, you have to stand up to people, even your adult kids. I know too many people who run away from their problems instead of facing them head on. And then they're miserable for the rest of their lives.

It works the other way around. My mother died two years ago in Sept, and she asked me to stay with my father, because he couldn't live alone. I was beyond miserable....I felt abused. I complied for a year and a half, till he got remarried (at 90). We're probably both happier now.

Sell the house & buy an RV!

"Learn to say no" works sometimes, but as people get older, adult children who want to move in may give them grief & try to take control.

Take care of yourselves!

My friend bought a condo downtown with only one bedroom. That took care of her problem.
