18 year old living at home--their financial responsibility?
Asked Aug 4, 2012, 07:38 AM
We have an 18 yr old living at home, going to community college full time and who works full time. She is never home, doesn't check in with us, doesn't tell us where she is or what she is doing, and only comes home to shower and sleep. She uses our gym membership, we pay for her car insurance, cell phone, and most recently, a new laptop for school, not to mention all her health related expenses and items she needed for her CNA classes. She has now asked for us to pay for school supplies for her new schedule at college. What the heck do you need for college? A few notebooks? Ok. But she wants ridiculous, useless crap. When do you draw the line and what exactly should we be paying for? She keeps telling us we are being unfair and too strict.
