    Have you ever had to kick your child out of the house and why?

    Were you able to rebuild your relationship?

    My mother kicked me out of the house when I was nineteen and I could not love her more for it.

    I have "friends" who are my age, still living with their parents and treating their family like the Hilton. And I thank my mother everyday that I am a more independant person now than I was ten years ago.

    Sadly, yes.  I had a young adult child that was involved in drugs and self-mutilation.  I had rules and this child had the choice to obey them or leave.  The rules weren't obeyed, so I pointed to the door.  It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.  I had much younger children watching it all, so in addition to doing all I knew to help this child, I had to do whatever it took to make the others realize there are consequences to the choices we make in life.

    We are still working on the rebuilding.

    I don't have children, but my mother kicked me out of the house (not permanently, only for a short period of time).

    She had rules in place, and I was a rather rebellious child. In the end, it helped strengthen our relationship because I saw the time and effort she put into raising me, and the pain she felt going through with it.

    During this time though, I gained independence, and had an ability to build my own personality and character.
