stranger living in the house

Saturday, December 29, 2018

My older son has a friend he works with. His friend doesn't have any where to live. We don't really have any extra room so he will need to sleep on the couch. His friend said it is better than sleeping under a bridge. I really would have preferred to say no to his co-worker staying with us but I said ok. Now I just hope it won't be for long. My son has a good heart. One of the main problems I have is I usually wake up and spend the first few hours in the living room. I wish we had a spare room as that would make it so much easier. After a few days of being woke early he might be looking for some place else.

Have a great weekend and New Year's holiday.

    From the sound of this, it doesn't seem like your son's friend has any intention of moving out any day soon. I would suggest you sit down with your son and let him know that you expect him to handle this situation. He should find out 1) how long his friend thinks he might stay 2) what are his plans to enable him to move out?
    But perhaps first YOU should decide how long he will be welcome and tell your son. Also, are you feeding him? Is he contributing anything financially? It's all well and good to be kind-hearted but don't let yourself be taken advantage of.

    Nice of you to help out BUT make sure this friend understands there is a time is a short term solution not a long term fix! Good luck!
