Easier said than done, in today's climate. I don't like how people a can be judgemental about someone living with their parents still, when they don't know the circumstances behind it. If OP is a lazy ass with a well paid job, I'd agree with you. But we don't know that.

Exactly. I took my mom in when my dad passed away because she couldn't afford the house they had and it went into foreclosure. Perhaps it's something similar that had put OP in that position.

Don't listen to what the kids say, they don't have any respect for anyone these days. If you want to be devilish, you can't try and tell his parents what he said and hope they punish him.

That would also be a perfectly legitimate reason to still live with his mom at the age of thirty. I would think he'd mention something like that, though.

46, There are many reasons a 30 year old may live with his mother, but excluding extreme or unforeseeable circumstances, it all boils down to his own decisions in life. We can't control many of the things that happen to us, and it's one thing to get set back for a little while, but ultimately we are each responsible for where we end up in life.

Excluding insurmountable medical or psychological disorders on either the part of the child or the parent, the only other reason I can think of for a thirty year old to live with his mother that would not be his own damn fault would be the sudden loss of a job, and even then that would depend on the reason he lost his job. Even so, it would be up to that adult whether or not they stay in that situation.

So that justifies the kids behavior? I mean seriously that kid has zero respect, if he judges people so harshly. I don't know what's wrong with a lot of parents these days

I never said the kid's behavior was justified. But it's OP's fault for leaving himself so wide open for statements like that from little shits and for such statements being so painfully accurate.

But you never said what the kid did was wrong, only judge op's ways of living. At 30, it seems weird that he doesn't have his own place, but he could have a really good reason as to why he doesn't. I'm almost 25 and i live with my dad, and i'm saving money to move to california for a job and finding a place to live that goes with what i make is gonna be pretty fucking hard

Well I figured it went without saying. And the kid is eleven. You're twenty-five. OP is thirty. What's his excuse? Look, I'm not a hard ass. I know it's difficult starting out in life. I've been there. You're likely older than your parents were when they moved out, but that's the state of the country right now. You're using your time wisely and working towards a goal. If you keep at it, you're likely to make it to California within the next five years, or at least out of your dad's home. It will be difficult, but that's adulthood and the freedom and independence is worth it. If OP had spent the last five years doing what you're doing, he likely wouldn't be where he is today. He'd probably be in a much better place in life. Unless something totally crazy happened, he has no one to blame for that but himself.
