We gave our her until July 31 to get a job. She graduated in May. Not only has she not gotten a job she has not looked. I would have mercy on her if I knew she was actively looking. She is so spoiled. I am at my wits end with her. I even offered to take her shopping for professional clothes for interviewing and work. She has stood me up twice. What girl does not like to shop? She says she is just hanging out with friends and her boyfriend. She keeps borrowing the car. Now she is over at her moms because she never enforces rules on her. She will be 23 soon!!! She still is on our cell phone bill and car insurance. They were suppose to be off as of June 1. I am big on responsibility. How would you proceed?

Well I would say she can stay at her mothers house. Anything you told her about getting a job by that deadline you to to follow through with. Stop paying things for her. Stop supporting her period! She is adult and she can't just live life the way she is. She needs woman up and do the things she is supposed to.

First of all, I am a firm believer that the bio parents should be the rule makers. I've seen too many step families fall apart because Dad expected step mom to lay down the law and the kids resent it.
If you can get Dad to enforce it, I would cut her off. No phone, no car. If mom picks up the slack there isn't much you can do about it. Otherwise you will have a 30 year old living with you. You can ask my brother :)
