I Made My Elderly Parents Choose between Living in My Garage and a Nursing Home

A woman, living alone in a five-bedroom house, decided to let her parents move into the garage that she had converted into a guesthouse. Although they informed their children of this arrangement, his parents were disappointed and upset when they found out about their accommodation.
The woman, who anticipated her parents’ choice, was shocked by their reaction. In response, she made it clear that they would have to accept the garage living space or opt for a retirement home. Reddit users expressed support for the woman, citing her parents’ apparent entitlement and highlighting the benefits of the well-equipped guest house.
Some suggested setting boundaries and occasional visits with parents. “My friend recently converted her shed into a beautiful guest house, kitchen appliances, private bathroom, the works, her parents live there now and they have no problem with it. They like privacy and like to be close to their child. However, some thought the woman should have clarified everything with her parents from the start. Some told the woman that she should tell her parents that they could visit her occasionally in the main house, but that they needed to respect her boundaries.
