Good for him !!!!

If you want a relationship with your adult kids learn to give advice only when they ask and
learn to cheer them on ...

Consider treating him to a lunch and encouraging him, not criticizing.

Plain and simple--because you let them.
I'm sorry, I have a brother like this. It will never stop until my mom stops it.

Well we busted our humps to help him and get him things he needed and this is the thanks we get a one day notice he is moving out . we feel betrayed and angry and we no longer want to help any of them now because of how we were done .I'm not angry with my other children but they seem to be with me . But I can live with that .I'm just wondering why do these supposed adults act like entitled spoiled brats ? is this how our future generations are turning out ? I have seen other people complaining about their adult kids acting the same way and wondering why ? oh and now he has said he is moving in with his sister . Well I for one am tired of being the bad guy , anyone else here have the same problem with their adult kids ?

You are falling victim to the tax on negative behaviors dilemma.

Usually, either the tax brings in lots of tax money, but doesn't stop the behavior or it stops to behavior, but brings in no tax money.

Many governments think their new rule will stop the behavior AND bring in lots of tax money, which is what you were hoping for.
