    Tough love... If you don't next thing you'll realize is that he'll be 35 and doing the same thing..

    Kick him out!!! I know it sounds cold but you are doing him NO favor at all letting him stay at YOUR house. If making him leave puts him in danger that is his problem and his fault NOT YOURS. If he will not leave call the police and if necessary get a restraining order. 25 is WAY to old to be staying with parents.

    One of my siblings put my mom through this. Allowing him to take advantage like this only hurts him. At 25 he should have developed some personal responsibility, he should have grown up. I don't mean this harshly, but he hasn't grown up because you have allowed him not to. To the rest of the world, a 25 year old who lives with his parents and doesn't show them respect and take responsibility for himself is pathetic. I'm afraid that now he'll have to learn this the hard way.
    He'll make you feel guilty for this, he'll tell you that you are abandoning him, but sometimes people have to hit rock bottom before they'll start making positive changes in their life.

    Really, you'd be doing him a favour. With time he'll realize how easy he's had it, and he'll grow to appreciate you so much more.
    Don't give up hope on him, but do give him a boot in the right direction!

    Kick him out! No offense I mean...he just sounds like a real jerk! That'll probably get him to shape up though, then maybe he'll finally appreciate what you do for him.

    At this point he is not learning independence.
    He is learning dependence.
    The surly attitude is perhaps a symptom of poor self image.
    It could be dramatically improved by his supporting himself.
    I'd use his attitude as my excuse for emptying the nest.
    C'mon, he's trying to make it easy for you.

    Show him the door, if he doesn't leave the cops can make him see the light

    I would kick his ass out! Sounds like he needs to man up, and he'll never do that as long as you take care of him! Maybe a tour in the military would do him some good.

    You're fortunate. If he were paying rent, you would have to get an eviction notice in order to make him leave.

    Tough love dear, TOUGH LOVE. Kick him out. He needs to learn to fend for himself. He may hate you for it, but he's acting immature and should really be out on his own. Eventually he'll learn that it was a good thing you kicked him out. Tell him to show some respect and you'll give him a couple days to pack up and find a place, if he still doesn't respect you, kick him out sooner.

    set him free, he needs to learn for himself how to take care of himeself. plus 25 is a little old for him to still be living with the rents.

    tell him he needs to pay rent, if he cant do that by the end of the month,then tell him he needs to find another place to live by the end of the week. and if he still cant do that then start moving his stuff to the streets. its harsh but it gets your point across.
    AND You Need To Get Your Point Across....

    also you could try treating him like a little kid. he dosent want to grow up then serve diner in plastic dinosaur dishes. get creative.

    Kick his butt to the curb!!!!! I mean like yesterday!! There is no way I would let my son or daughter live in my house and not work and talk to me like that. My daughter is 22 years old is going to college, working and paying her internet bill and she buys her groceries because she does not always eat what we do. Now if my 22 year old can do it then your 25 year old son can. Get a back bone and tell him to get out and don't let the door hit him on the way out. Stop giving him money and make him earn his own way.

    First of all, you CAN'T tell him to "grow up" ESPECIALLY since you yourself haven't "grown up" and thrown his aS* OUT. There is NO WAY under ANY circumstance that would convince me to keep a LOSER like him in my house. GROW SOME yourself and kick him to the curb.

    I'm disabled and have had a hard life. Sometimes it's easier said then done. There's so many things I'm unable to do.

    Tell him he has a week to find somewhere else to live because you might have "potential" renters & he's not contributing & being disrespectful!
