So I have been complaining on here how my SD19 is driving me crazy...Does nothing, contributes nothing, does not go to school.  All in all, just counting the days till she is out of my house.  Anyway, I have two co-workers with kids who have done what they are suppose to do. That being work, go to college and do well.  Well their kids went to Rutgers and Columbia both with a costly prices tag.  One co worker went on to say that between her two sons there are about $250K in student loans to pay.  She has told her boys that she would pay 1/2 the loans back.  Well with my little dunce, still in her 6th year of high school I don't have to worry about something like this...Look at all the money she has saved me and DH!!! Now the fact that we are still supporting her does not seem so bad....All in the prospective!!!

You should probably get some therapy to help you get over how much you hate this kid.

Not everyone ends up in debt. I went to school for seven years and don't owe a penny

Not nice but that is a positive perspective :)

That said, it is easier or more pleasant to pay for the school fees than to deal with an adult kid who fails to launch.

100% agreed, but when you give them all the tools to launch and they don't what can you do?

She can still attend college ya know. I have an aunt who's in her 40s and she just went to get yet another degree.

May I recommend perhaps therapy for you. This is a legal adult living in your home. You obviously have ill feelings towards this woman and it's not healthy.


In other words-LET IT GO ELSA. Try to think of some positive things about her-or perhaps you and her dad and her can sit and talk about goals...short term and long term and see if you could help nudge things along.
