Neither panic nor be entirely calm. If he is legally an adult, he's allowed to be stupid, but this is obviously a worrying pattern, as there's no normal need for someone to stay out unpredictably and without explanation, and he could be mixed up in all sorts of mischief. If he lived alone and supported himself, he could say its none of your business. But he's living in your home, and maybe also supported by you financially ? If so, then you are entitled to declare some firm rules. He can choose to leave, and support himself, or, if he chooses to stay with you, he must not stay out all night, and must not go out without telling you where hes going and when he'll be home. And no money at all from you unless you know what he ia spending it on.

Don''t worry, mom

He is probably going out to deal some weed for extra cash, or to give blow jobs to old-aged men in their cars while they have kids and a wife back at home. Or mayby the possibility that he is spiderman..

Stop being so paranoid, he is 20 years old.
P.s it could be worse
