Hi Fullhouse, I'm feeling your pain. I have a 18 year old son and a 16 year old daughter. My son seems to feel that I'm the unreasonable one because I object to having strange girls emerging from his bedroom in the mornings. They are mostly quite blaze about the situation. OMG if it had been me all those years ago I would have been mortified with embarrassment! Now I don't think I'm a prude. I've bought condoms in the groceries and if this were a steady girlfriend of at least a few months I wouldn't have an issue. I have laid down the ground rules on numerous occasions "no sleepovers" but my wishes are ignored and he does what he likes. I've told him that if he can't live by my rules then move out but he knows that that will cost money so that's not likely. He feels that he is entitled to have whoever he wants to stay but my view is that at 18, an adult, he is no longer entitled..he is now a guest in my home and it's not some share house. My 16 year old daughter is watching and I am also conscious that I'll need to be even handed with my expectations of accepable behaviour and respect. I don't know what to do next. I'm so tired of the arguments.
