The fact that he explores the limits here and there happens, but you should simply use this to ‘readjust’, to make it clear that you are really a good package leader, because you remain calm and consistent with your educational guidance.

An exciting time, which will allow for a more steady co-living. You have developed routines and your buddy is fully integrated family member – with their own opinion.
