Need Advice - My sons girlfriend is pregnant

Robin - posted on 07/07/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




I love my son with all my heart and when I found out he had gotten his girlfriend pregnant I really didn't know what to think. After many long talks, my son decided full heartedly he wanted to be in this childs life and I have wanted a grandchild for a long time. They couldn't afford an apartment let alone a baby so I offered to let them move in here and even watch the baby after maternity leave. So now they're living here and she's 5 months pregnant. She is the rudest person I have ever met, she has no manners, and she makes me feel uncomfortable in my own home like I'm walking on egg shells. She lives in this princess mentality and she wants things to be all about her all the time. She is very passive aggressive and tries her hardest to either hurt my feelings or make my blood boil. She has a fit over paying $150 a month for rent and has never thanked us once for staying here. She avoids me and my husband like the plague and only speaks when spoken to. If anyone has any advice please tell me I'm at the end of my rope.

Did you draw up a rent agreement when they moved in?
I think when adult children are moving in, you need to have a set of house rules that everyone must live by. You need to have a house meeting and all discuss how things are going to work in your home. You'll also need to point out that you are helping them. Write down how much they would be paying if they were on their own and that only charging them $150 a month is really cheap.
I applaud you for helping them out but what is it really teaching them? If they can't afford to support themselves now, how will they be able to support a child? You would know that children get more expensive as they get older.
