What is the FREAKING deal with adult children?
I really never realized what a pain in the ass grown children could be till I started posting here. I mean seriously!
I call my parents and visit them on a fairly regular basis. J does the same with his dad. We are a real close knit family but we don't INTRUDE on our parents life. Does anyone on this site know the difference between being CLOSE but not INTERFERING or am I the only one.
Is it a generational type thing where kids are not becoming self sufficient at adulthood anymore or WTF? I am not kidding. This is ridiculous. Don't these people realize that their parents spent their best years raising them and now deserve a semi-life of their own?
Whatever happened to seniors retiring and going RVing around the world with their spouses? You can't do that because GOD FORBID, your fourty year old daughter might need you to keep her kids for her so she can go on vacation or your 30 year old son may need to live with you because he's a slacker and can't hold a job. Jesus.
I understand that a parent is always a parent but that shouldn't mean you never have a life. I have a friend who is now in his mid fourties. His father was divorced from his mother and his dad eventually remarried. My friend was 20 and still living at home at the time and was giving the new wife (admittedly) all manner of hell. The woman almost left his dad over it it was so bad. His father finally told him "Look, you are an adult. This is my wife. It has come down to either you move out or she moves out so....Anchors away my boy." He joined the Navy and left home. This friend is still very close with his father but his dad was NOT going to let this grown man run his life. I think dad was within his rights if not as a PARENT then as a PERSON to have a life of his own without his adult son dictating every move he made.
Kid's stay on their parents titties way to long anymore. That's a blunt statement but it's a scarily true one.
