He is a good boy. Athletic, very social. He has always butted heads with mom. Maybe because we are more alike in ways. I sometimes think his dad has spoiled him and made things too easy for him. He tries to be his buddy. I have never agreed with that. he is living at home. He just finished his Freshman year in colleges. Honestly, I am ready to cut the umbilical cord!!!!!

You should set rules that he needs to live by if he's going to stay under your roof. Spell it all out very plainly. If he chooses to break the rules, then he needs to find another place to live. The rules should be fair, and you need to keep in mind that legally he IS an adult.

I'm with Jodi, what's the problem? In the eyes of the law, he's an adult so let him be one and live on his own.

So cut it! He's an adult. If he can't live by the house rules, then he can find a house where he can live how he pleases! And pay for the privilege!
