Hi all. I haven't posted for a while because difficult child was out of sight and out of mind (at least, I wasn't obsessing over her...much!) To make a long story shorter, difficult child and boyfriend have apparently broken up "for good" (we'll see) this time. difficult child called husband today and asked if she could come home for 2 weeks (along with all her furniture and dog). Supposedly, the apartment they are in is in his name only. difficult child plans to get an apartment with a girlfriend whose lease is supposed to be up in 2 weeks. On one hand, I am thrilled that she is getting away from boyfriend. I think they are BOTH abusive to each other, and it was just unhealthy all the way around. I just hope it sticks this time. On the other hand, she has treated me like sh*t on so many occasions, I am not eager to open the door to her. husband and I are on the same page, for the most part. We will put clear rules in place before we allow her home for even one night. The rules will be: 1. No profanity or calling any family member names. 2. If you plan to be away for more than 24 hours, you will call and check in with us. 3. No going in your sister's room without an invitation (she helps herself to easy child's stuff and doesn't return it). 4. No computer usage or incoming phone calls after 11 pm. (this has been a problem in the past...tapping on keyboard keeps us awake). I'm wondering if we should add: she must get a full psychological evaluation and follow the psychiatrist's recommendations. This is a <u>definite</u> requirement if she wants to stay more than two weeks, but maybe we should insist from the get-go. I don't want to go here again, but I love my daughter and don't want her "on the streets." HELP!
