Q My ex and I have been broken-up for about seven months now. Our 17-year-old daughter has had a sort of open door policy -- we understand she will be 18 in 6 months and to fight about where she lives just seems silly. Last month my ex moved in with her new boyfriend and our daughter now refuses to stay at her mother's home. Even though she has her own room at her mother's, she says that it's "creepy" at her mom's. I suspect it is because mom and boyfriend sleep in the same room, but I don't know what to say at this juncture. What's good ex-etiquette?
