My Grandson has now been living with me for about a month. He soon will be 19. He asked if his girlfriend could come over. I haven't met her yet. So I said sure and suggested we all could watch tv or rent a movie. He said no and that they're going to stay in his room. I said ok but no hanky panky in my house so please keep your door open. He said, what the ... , I'm 19, why? I said because this is my home and that's my choice not yours! I won't change my mind but would still appreciate some other opinions.

I know he is your grandson and he goes to school . I was 19 going to school and working 2 jobs. It is not hard 16 year olds work and go to high school!

It is your home and he should follow the rules. When we are at that age we think we know it all and what not. Not only that sorry to sa,y kids think about sex and only sex now a days. Do not let him step all over you. He needs to learn to always respect women especially those such as family members, more so his grandmother. I know sometimes kids want to hang out in their room but more then sure something at some point will go down. Kids now a days think they are "grown folks at 13, but you let him know your house your rules. Or make him get a job and pay rent!

I think anytime you live in someone else's house you need to follow the house rules. It's just a matter of respect and if that's your rules then he should abide by them if he wants to live with you.

Agree 100%. Part of being an adult is to respect that he is living under your roof, and if he wants to continue to live there he has to respect the rules of your home.

Then he needs to get a job and support himself.
Why is he living with you? Where are his parents?
He needs to respect your house, no excuses. If he isn't willing to live by your rules, or even talk to you about them then he should leave. You don't have to put up with the attitude.

I agree with Little Miss, if he won't sit down with you to discuss the house rules then he needs to leave.
It's your house and you set the rules. If he wants to be an adult then he live on his own and be an adult.

Well, then you tell him he has to leave. Give him 2 weeks to pack up his stuff and go. He is in YOUR home, and will not be disrespectful. If he changes his mind, great....then talk with him.

Sorry, I am all about tough love.

Thank you, one other prob is that when I've tried that, he just gets up and walks away:(

Totally understandable. Sounds like if he is going to be living with you for a while, you should sit down and talk about boundaries and house rules.
