We have three daughters. A pregnant, unwed 25yr old , a 23 yr old and a 17 yr old. The 17yr old is in her senior year and does not work. The 25yr old was laid off 3 weeks ago. The 23 yr old has a stable job earning $36,000.00.
The working ones have been contributing $100 a month toward the household. The 25 yr old cooks, cleans, feeds the pets, etc...The 23 yr old cleans the cat boxes every two weeks and complains. She also has a friend that stays here regularly. Since they live here, they use and have access to all the commodities...washing clothes, using products, eating food...etc...
Is it unfair to ask for more? I love my daughters dearly and want the best for them but, my husband and I are having difficulty maintaining the household. Am I being a bad parent if I demand more? I am feeling guilty and do not want to displace my daughters. Please provide advice.
