Those who feel guilt always make up stories to find some sense of comfort justification. It's probably one of the guys. Govt. needs to ban online poker.

Same step dad who got physical with you when you were pregnant? Total dysfunction. It may be normal in your world, but it is dysfunctional and unhealthy.

Nope not the same one. That guy was new and lasted less than a year thank god. (edit I mean the one who got physical with me while pregnant that is)

Oh please give it a rest. The kid deserved what he dished out. If he even tries it again when he gets bigger, then mom should just have the little bastard arrested. Just desserts.

Hmm, our sons are 23 and 27. We live in Atlanta, not New York. Our sons degrees are not in finance either. I explicitly said that one of our sons had a job I think online poker is a popular way for young men to make additonal money nowadays. Our kids have no desire to move out, where it seems the guy in that post wants to leave. What in the world would I get out of being dishonest?

Anyway we do not want our sons living on the streets. We were thinking of offering to rent them an apartment to get on their feet, then slowly require them to start paying their own way. As far as cutting off cable and internet, they make their own money and would be able to pay for their own service. My wife and I refuse to compromise our comforts to squeeze our sons out of the house. We are not going to turn off our electricity, cut off cable and internet, remove doors from our home, live with an empty fridge, and live in a home where we play other passive aggressive games. We are aging and trying to enjoy our retirement.

We are good parents with kids who just need an extra push. They are college graduates, did well in school, and can be helpful at times. We just need our home back and we need to do this without ruining our relationship. The physical attacks stopped about five years ago after my wife and I signed up for self-defense classes. We want to enjoy our golden years without our sons inviting themselves on our vacations, using our vehicles without our permission, and interrupting our dinner parties with their foul-mouthed, drunk and high friends coming by.

We are incapable of being cold and shunning. My wife and I are in counseling about this and feel we are making some progress. I just wanted some advice on how to get my kids out without destroying our relationship. These are our only kids and we love them very much. Cutting our relationship ties is not an option. They will have families and we want to be a part of our future grandchildrens' lives.

Maybe you all are ok with a Jerry Springer episode for a family, but I have higher standards.

Nope one was ignorant and violent and the other was defending his wife and showing a young man that when you put your hands on a woman you get hands put on you. He was my step dad but the greatest man i've ever had the pleasure of knowing. May God rest his soul.
