Fed-up father

Dear Queenie,

My wife and I let a friend’s son come to live with us while he attends university, until he can move into a dormitory or get a place of his own. The problem is that our own children do not like having him here because he is a “stranger” and they are not very nice to him, partly because they think it is costing us money even though they know his parents are paying us for his room and board.

Queenie, what can we do about this?—Fed-up father

Dear Father,

It is up to you and your wife, not your children, to decide who should be a guest, paying or not, in your home. Even if they do not like your friend’s son, you should insist that your children treat him with respect and courtesy.
