GOOD MORNING READERS AND FELLOW BLOGGERS, MAY THIS BLOG FIND YOU IN GREAT SPIRITS!

Today I will dedicate my blog to “FORUM FRIDAY”, where I will open up my blog to you all, for you to share your views on today’s questions. The only thing I ask of all who participate, is to be respectful of everyone’s opinions and just agree to disagree. Remember we are adults and grown-ups should be able to communicate rationally and respectfully. With that being said, I look forward to reading your answers in addition to sharing my answers.

QUESTION 1:

SHOULD GROWN ADULT CHILDREN BE LIVING WITH THEIR PARENTS OR HAVE A PLACE OF THEIR OWN?

MY ANSWER:

THIS QUESTION CAN BE ANSWERED MANY DIFFERENT WAYS, AND MOSTLY DEPENDS ON THE INDIVIDUALS. THERE COULD BE SCENARIOS WHERE THE ADULT CHILD OWNS THE HOME AND THE PARENTS LIVE WITH THEM. THEN YOU HAVE SITUATIONS WHERE PARENTS NEED CARE AND THE ADULT CHILDREN LIVE THERE TO HELP THEM. WITH SITUATIONS WHERE, THE FAMILY IS HELPING ONE ANOTHER TO REACH A MUTUAL GOAL, THEN THAT IS GREAT AND OBTAINABLE. LIVING WITH YOUR PARENTS AT AN ADULT AGE, ISN’T TERRIBLE AND CAN WORK OUT IF APPLIED CORRECTLY!

 

QUESTION 2:

DO YOU ALLOW YOUR GROWN CHILDREN TO HAVE THEIR SIGNIFICANT OTHER SPEND THE NIGHT OVER OR LIVE IN YOUR HOME?

MY ANSWER:

NO, NO, NO, NO AND HELL TO THE NO. IF YOU ARE MARRIED AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS, THEN YES IT CAN FLY IN MY HOUSE. I HAVE FIVE GRANDCHILDREN AND NEITHER WAS CONCEIVED ON MY WATCH, BECAUSE NONE OF MY CHILDREN ARE MARRIED. THESE ARE MORALS AND VALUES THAT I CARRY, DESPITE OTHERS VIEWS AND OPINIONS. WE MUST INSTILL AND TEACH OUR CHILDREN THAT WHEN PRIORITIES ARE LINED UP, NON FACTOR ISSUES ARE IRRELEVANT! 

 

QUESTION 3:

SHOULD GROWN ADULTS WHO LIVE WITH THEIR PARENTS, BE CHARGED RENT AND PAY BILLS?

MY ANSWER:

TO IDENTIFY THE TERMS AS PAYING RENT AND BILLS, THAT IS NOT WHAT WE WANT. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO GET THE GROWN CHILD TO CONTRIBUTE TO A WHOLE, WHILE THEY BENEFIT FROM THE WHOLE. THERE IS NO REASON WHY AN ADULT CHILD SHOULDN’T WANT TO CONTRIBUTE, THAT IS JUST UNAPPRECIATIVE AND UNGRATEFUL. BRINGING SOMETHING TO THE TABLE IS NOT ALWAYS MEASURED IN QUANTITY, BUT RATHER THE ABILITY AND WILL. WHEN ALL HEADS ARE WORKING TOGETHER, TOWARDS THE SAME GOALS, THE RESULTS ARE REWARDING. DON’T EVER BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU, BUT RATHER COOK SOMETIMES OR FEED THE TABLE!
