How To Greet And Manage With An Adult Child When He Shifts In Again

By Connor Sullivan

Being a parent, you would have had a whole bunch of memories of your kid. When he came into this world, when he went to school, when you praised him while he played his first piano melody under the piano light, when he began to grow, and lastly, when he moved out to make millions. Now, as you look at his vacant room and see the piano lights under which he used to play, you might get a sad feeling. However, it doesn’t take you long to remove the thought out of your head. After all, you are now alone with your partner, and your child has to manage himself on his own. However, you may find your grownup kid moving in the house once again. This is when you will start smelling problems.

Earlier in the seventies, only eight percent of the grownups aged 25 to 34 lived with parents. The beginning of 21st century has immensely elevated this figure. Today, a lot of of the parents see their children coming back to the houses. This might be an additional burden to the parents who can no longer have their privacy. Furthermore, it also disturbs their budget because now they have to take care of an adult who should have been able to earn well by now, and afford a house of his own. The reasons for the elevation may be many such as unemployment, inflation in fuel costs, and difficulty in qualifying for home mortgage might be a few to name.

Well, you are still a parent to your kid and would welcome him for sure. However, it is advisable if you discuss the rules in your living place. You might find great changes in the personality of your child since he moved out. He might not fiddle with the rules very quickly because before he was living a life that was not ruled by your rules. But now that he has moved in again, you should have a little discussion on the policies you have in your house. Ensure that you have a discussion with him about overnight guests in the home, blasting speakers, abusive language, use of drugs/liquor, etc.

When your grownup child is living with you again, there is no harm in inquiring him about how long he plans to be around. You should ask about this situation in a tactful manner so that he might not feel irritated. It is better to ask him about his employment, his advancement, and his personal life. A lot of grownup children might return to their homes when they are depressed about a recent break up or the loss of their employment. In such a condition, you should not make him more hassled by asking the period of his stay directly. Offer him a shoulder to cry on while you tactfully ask him about his stay.

The most effective key is to communicate with your child. Be friendly, and be strict about the rules at the same time. Communicate with your child and figure out what is is it in his life that makes him unhappy. He might just require some emotional help, and you sure can provide that to make him feel good.
