It is hard to know how to handle disrespect and behavior issues with kids that are technically adults. But I do think it's reasonable to have boundaries in place with him while he's living in your home. For instance, I know a lot of parents sit down and discuss some ground rules with their kids if they expect to keep living at home as adults. So, finding a job, helping around the house, etc. might be some things to discuss with him. There's some more tips on this topic in an article I came across at http://bit.ly/1nKdgC7. So, just FYI. You'll be in my prayers!
