My 18 year old daughter will not get a job, she does not help around the house, she comes and goes as she pleases. I ask her to do something she will ask me why cant I get off my lazy ass and do it. She stopped going to school but is going back on the 12th of this month. We have stopped giving her money, buying her stuff and taking her places. She does not drive, she wanted to at 16 but her dad and I felt that until she behaves and follows rules she should not have a car. She can now get her license but is not motivated. We offered to help her buy a car if she graduates and gets a part time job to pay for insurance and gas. Seems like all she wants to do is smoke pot and hang out with her friends. This will get her no where in life, yes we got her into a Rehab program, thearpy, family thearpy she just does not see a problem.
