My 80 yr old father moved in with us about 6 years ago. I have 2 teenagers still living at home, they are now 18 and 21. My father doesn’t leave the living room. He sits in his chair from 11:00am, on the dot, till 11:00pm, on the dot. He leaves for 15 minutes in the afternoon to get lunch across the street, and that’s it. He watches what he wants, and usually it’s sports of any kind. He also sits there with his IPad watching movies or playing games at the same time. My kids, and myself, have basically spent all these years in our separate rooms. I’m seeing the repercussions of this slowly and it’s got me feeling so much anger towards him. My husband has mentioned to him that my kids would like to relax in the living room and watch tv or just hang out like typical kids do. His response is “well where am I supposed to go?” Your room is what I want to tell him. He has a tv in there. What about my kids?? They have been the ones to compromise all these years. If they do come in the living room, he sits there making noises or stares at them. He makes it uncomfortable for everyone. I’m so exhausted from being angry. My family has suffered terribly from this situation. If he goes in his room for something and hears one of us out there, he comes rushing out. If I try to clean and vacuum, he stays put. Doesn’t even have the decency to go in his room so I can clean. He’s still in pretty good health and is able to move around and drive. But something has got give. I’ve become a ticking time bomb. I just want my family time. If we leave he pouts. To bring it up, he makes it about him. My kids shouldn’t be confined to their rooms. And neither should I. This isn’t his home. He pays a little rent, and that’s it. He sits there sighing if dinner isn’t served to him every night. He literally never moves from his chair!! Writing this out, it sounds little and stupid, but honestly I’m breaking down. My family has suffered, I’ve lost many precious years and time with my kids that I can’t get back. I feel like I’m failing them by not standing up for them and their needs. How do I tell my father enough is enough and he needs to be more considerate?
