Justin Halpern has a twitter feed that’s pretty much all about sharing profane things his father says. What makes it interesting is that Justin is 29, and he’s living at home with his 73-year-old dad. He recently wrote a piece for CBS Moneywatch, sharing some of his dad’s insights into their relationship. Among them is:
‘I don’t give a [expletive] when you leave, I just need to know you’re [expletive] leaving someday.’
That’s a rough way of putting it, but it’s important nonetheless. Setting a timeline for your adult child’s departure is one of the most important ways you can help them maintain their self-respect — and help you maintain your sanity.
