At this point, your daughter and her boyfriend appear to be a package deal. I put the loss of a child in the category of one of the toughest things any of us will go through in this life. You need to show compassion in all aspects of dealing with your daughter. That won't always be easy when you want to send the boyfriend packing. For now, in the interest of your daughter, let it go. If you really want him to go away, try to get to know him, invite him to family meals and influence him. One of two things will happen, he will either get tired of being around you, or you will figure out why your daughter is with him. Either way, show your daughter compassion.
My adult daughter quit school and choose instead to work. She has recently been bringing people home with her when we're asleep and against our longstanding rules. She's even gone so far as to disable our security cameras to sneak someone in. She's had run-ins with the law over alcohol and drug possession. My wife is reluctant to kick our daughter out without a place to live, but I'm willing to rent a storage unit for her stuff and letting her 'figure it out.' Am I right?
My 26yo daughter (employed) and her 30 yo husband (unemployed) live in a van with their dog b/c they haven’t been able to save and want to try van life for a year during the summer in FL. Her father and I live here too. They want us to watch their dog during the day, and we refused. They said we are the only parents who would ever refuse to help. My husband is about to disown her (we just paid for $30000 wedding last month and put her through college debt free) I feel guilty. Thoughts? Advice?
What should I do if my adult son has no job and has been evicted, but has custody of my granddaughter? My boyfriend does not want him here, and we don’t have the room. I paid for him to stay ten days in a hotel, but I cannot continue to help him. I could get him to stay in a shelter, but he may have a problem seeing his daughter.
