I would also add to my response about teenagers displaying anti-social 
behavior. It’s a story from one of our members who had raised a child with out 
of emotional and behavior problems. She said she couldn’t have lived in 
cohousing when he was a teenager because the situation is too unstructured and 
uncontrolled. The openness of the CH, for example, presented too many 
opportunities for abuse and theft. Unsupervised younger children. Unlocked 
doors. DVDs that could be easily stolen and sold. A computer with internet 

Cohousing communities are not therapeutic communities. A healthy living and 
growing environment isn’t enough for some people.
