When does letting your children move back home go to far? How do you draw the line when it comes to family? What can you do to avoid falling into a bad situation such as enabling your child, or being taken advantage of by an ungrateful child. We love our children. Well, most of us do! We try to do what's best for them and raise them the right way, so that they grow into strong self sufficient educated young adults. But, when we try to help, or answer a request for help, and it turns into something it shouldn't have turned into, what do we do? Sometimes, they just sponge off of us, and could care less what effect it has on us. They know they have it good, and they milk it for all its worth, and to heck with who they hurt, both financially and mentally. Sometimes, we go too far, and do too much for our children, and fall into this trap because of our own actions, or inaction whatever the case may be. Nobody wants these things to happen, but with times as tough as they are, we're seeing variations of this situation more and more. I'm interested to hear what peoples thoughts on this topic are, and plan to follow up with what you have to say about it. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it yet. I will say that I'm leaning toward tough love being the only way out of this situation at this time. What do you think? If you don't already, follow me on Twitter @gen22y Maybe we have something to talk about today?
