Boomerang Blues

Posted on | March 21, 2012 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:Our son just moved back home after living on his own for several years in another city. He is an adult now and we try not to make too many rules but he and his girlfriend were having a VERY good time this weekend and the sounds were “uncomfortable” for us and kept us awake for two nights! What to do?

Dear Dad:This is one of the many reasons we do not support the current Boomerang trend. Almost any other solution is preferable — even a time-limited rent subsidy.  Moving back home is regressive behavior and promotes dependency… and bad manners.  Don’t discuss details. Tell your son, in the nicest possible way, that he has 30 days to make other living arrangements.
