For my 18+ child out of school and living at home she is to obtain a job once she gets the okay from her 6 week OB visit (she just had a baby) and she is to use that money to help pay for diapers, formula, and medicine for the baby. She is to put the rest in the bank and save up for a vehicle.
At home she is to participate with the cleaning of the house - she lives here just as we all do and all of us have to pitch in to keep our home clean, including her.
I do things for her, though, like the laundry for her and my granddaughter, drive her to all their appointments, buy them what they both need, feed them, buy her a $20 phone card each month, and let her use my computer when I'm not. I also take care of my granddaughter as often as she will let me and as often as my schedule allows me to.
