I have a 18yr old brother. He lives with me and my husband and our 2 kids. All he does is sleep and play on our computer. He refuses to get a damn job. I dont work bc I stay at home with my kids whom are 2 n 15mnths. He recently got kicked out of my nannys house bc he slept all day and our mom wont take care of him, I have been since I was 13. Im at my wits end with his smart mouth and sleeping all day. I dont know what to do anymore and im going to go crazy. Anytime I say something about him getting a job he says "when you get one I will get one." That bugs the shit out of me because of the fact that im a STAY AT HOME MOM!!!!! My husband doesnt work his ass off to support a 18 yr old while taking care of his family to. HELPAnswer Question

Yes, you can put him out. The reason he continues to play you is because you are allowing it. He needs to be forced to stand on his own feet or he won't do it. It's no different than a mommy bird pushing the baby bird out of the nest so that it learns to fly. Until faced with the reality of having to take care of himself, he won't do it. Anything else is enabling him to continue living irresponsibly.
