Dust Bunnies and Green Mold

When my child transitioned to adult services I said something important at the first meeting. "Look! everyone!. I won't be in here checking for dust bunnies under the bed or green mold in the refrigerator."  What I do want 

to do is work together with profound respect. That means that at some point in the future, something is going to happen. I don't know when and I don't know what. It may be the first night or it may be six years from now. If and when it does, I want us to have the kind of relationship that means it is safe enough for either one of us to pick up the phone, tell one another what is going on and support each other in finding the solution.
