Hudson Valley Mom Need Your Advice
Every Wednesday on the Wakin' Up with CJ and Jess Show we dim the lights and turn the studio into a group therapy office and try to tackle a fellow Wolf listeners problem.
We call it "We Gotcha Wednesday" and we randomly select an email from our inbox each week and some weeks the issues are real serious and others not so much. This week we land on the serious side of things for this Hudson Valley Mom. She wrote us....
"My daughter has upset me so much these few months, I don’t even know where to begin, but here it goes. My daughter is 23 years old. She quit her retail job because she was “bored” and now she’s trying to be “Instagram famous”, but her money comes from her father and I. She is dating this loser, who also doesn’t work because his dream is to move to California and become an actor. They both just sit around the house all day, not working, and take pictures of themselves, and eat my food. Well now she’s telling me he has to move in full time because his parents are kicking him out and he’ll have no where else to go. I am furious! Her father and I do not like this kid at all, but I’m afraid if we tell her no, she’ll move out with him, or be homeless somewhere. My husband doesn’t want to lose our daughter so he thinks we should let him move in, and make them both work and pay rent. My sister thinks I need to kick them both out because they’re worthless.
Do I let him move in, even though I know in my gut it’s not right, or do I say no and risk losing my daughter?"
WOW, as a parent that is a tough spot to be in but I think that both Jess and I agree that if they do let their daughter and her guy move in together that they have to establish ground rules and make sure to enforce them from the start. Like they have to have jobs and contribute rent of some sort.
