How to Host Your Parents Without Losing Your Mind

For some of us, when family announces they re coming to town, alarms go off, panic ensues, and a couple glasses of whiskey are poured.

Talk About Your Space and Sleeping Setup Before They Arrive

If your parents are coming from out of town for the first time, it s good to start with a conversation about space.

Or is your apartment so small that they re just better off getting a hotel?

The first time either of my parents came out to visit me when I lived in Seattle, I lived in an apartment that was far too tiny to cram in any additional people for any amount of time, so I had to have the talk early on about hotels.

If need be, split the cost, or offer up whatever financial solution you can, but I promise the entire stay will go much smoother if everyone gets their own space.
