My 18 yr old daughter is living at home, is not in school and has no job. She does nothing to help around the house, but leaves plenty of messes. She comes and goes as she pleases, sometimes not coming home for days. She dropped out of school at the beginning of her senior year, but has since gotten her GED.
I am so frustrated and angry with her. When I get home after working all day and she is hanging out, piles of dirty dishes in the sink, her bedroom a mess I get so angry. A part of me wants her to move out because she refuses to do anything or follow any rules. The other part of me is scared to kick her out because she has no drivers license, has never worked, no skills of any kind. What will she do?
I have a 12 year old daughter in the home as well, and I worry constantly about her exposure to this.
Any ideas? How do you emotionally handle this kind of tough love?
