          Parents Say They Want Their 23-Year-Old Son To Move Out – But Are They Enabling Him to Stay?


          January 27, 2017

          Krissie and Randy say if it weren’t for their 18-month-old granddaughter, they would kick their son, Justin, and his girlfriend out of their home. They say ever since they moved in two years ago, the house is a mess, Justin has stolen thousands of dollars from them and he is disrespectful.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Parent of an entitled 20-something-year-old?

          Justin, who is jobless and admits he ‘smokes weed’ every day, says his parents are to blame for his behavior. He claims he’s been spoiled his whole life and his parents never taught him a work ethic, so how do they expect him to behave?
