How do I get my adult daughter (19 yrs) to obey House Rules?
My daughter pays $400.00 a month Room and Board (not making it easy for her) She insists that she should be able to have anyone over at anytime without asking or letting us know.
She has a bedroom in the basement with her own TV, stereo, and X Box. She does not have a boyfriend but alot of guy friends. She insists on having these guy friends (19 to 22 yrs) in her room. They watch TV/Movies, listen to music or play the XBox, and drink beer..She has a full time job. There is a family room right next to her bedroom! But they insist on privacy, as there are others in the house. I do not like this. Everytime I say something she gets mad (yelling and swearing) saying she is an adult, nothing is happening. She pays room and board. So she shouldn’t have to ask or tell. I don’t like the guys in her bedroom.
I have a hard time going to bed knowing there is a guy downstairs in my daughters room. Whom I hardly know. I tell her she can do that in her own place. But she tells me to calm down.
Any tips, or suggestions?
