  • dont make him food dont do anything for him at all, and tell him he needs to help out or get out its not a free ride in life and you have 1 child NOT two

  • tell him he needs to start acting like a father and a husband and stop acting like a teenage boy. I'd also stop making him dinner and when he plays video games leave the house and hang with a friend. If he asks why, tell him you'd rather be with someone who talks to you then watch him play video games all day.

  • Hahahah! Too funny adelinasmommy. Stop doing crap from him and tell him to get off his punk @$$ and start helping out. Get the cable turned off and sell his video game system.

  • You can help him by telling him to man up or move out. You are enabling him by allowing this. It will only continue and eventually get worse

  • Tell him it is time to grow up and be a dad because one day he is going to look back and realized he missed out on so much with DD.
