How to Handle House Guests That Stay Too Long

Having guests overstay their welcome is never a pleasant thing. Here's what to do when they just don't get the hint and go home!
  1. Set boundaries. Prevention is the key, so before anyone actually lands on your doorstep, let them know how long you're willing to have them stay in your home.
  2. Appreciate your guests when they are behaving well. If they help with the dishes, or offer to watch your kids, thank them deeply.
  3. Hold your ground. It's so easy once someone is actually planted on your couch for them to stay longer than you planned.
