Determine a Realistic Timeframe


How long your child lives at home is dependent on his situation. If he is in school, you may want to set a move-out date a month or two after graduation. If your child is unemployed, expecting him to diligently look for a job, and move out upon employment, is reasonable. Have a discussion with your child and agree on a time frame. This will help him on his road to independence, and it will give you peace of mind knowing your child's situation isn't permanent.
