Ok so I have a friend who through no fault of her own had to move back home with her 2 kids. Her relationship with her mother is rocky to say the least. She is very controlling, tries to take over parenting the children, allows no privacy etc...
Recently her mother went into her room without her permission to "help" her clean some things up when she specifically asked her NOT to. They argued, mom said this is her house, she can do what she wants. Daughter said actually no she can't that's trespassing on HER property, even a landlord needs permission and that is her private room. Of course a huge fight ensued. Mother said,"well you don't pay rent," daughter says,"we agreed before I moved in that's how it would be."
What do you think? Legally can she do anything ? This mother is something else I will tell you. The daughter is NOT ungrateful, but everytime mom helps out the daughter hears about it for weeks. Mom dangles it above her head.
