  • It sounds like your parents have some boundary issues. They are grown adults and making you stress is not fair to you. The only way you should be helping them is giving them a list of places in your area available to rent or buy and the want adds. You shouldnt be expected to find a place and a job for them! You need to explain that you cant take the stress. Why cant one of them like your dad come first and try and find a job first? I just dont know how they expect you to do all that. I would start taking a break from answering the phone and stand up for yourself!
