      Tough Love. It is the only way to teach someone lazy to get off their

      butt and accept responsibility. If removing them from your household is

      what it takes, then so be it. I am of the opinion that someone who is

      capable of doing most anything, should not be coddled. They should be

      pulling their own weight. To bring a child up under these circumstances

      is not setting a good example for the child. Whomever this person is

      needs to get off their hiny, get a job, contribute to all financial

      responsibilities of the household, as well as their fair share of

      household chores (laundry, home improvements, yard work, cooking,

      cleaning, etc.). Household chores are not just for adults, so assign the

      child some chores as well. If they cannot accept the new home rules,

      time for them to find a new home. Tough love. And if the family as a

      whole doesn’t like the idea, perhaps that family would like them to move

      in with THEM??? I’m assuming that the family as a “whole” doesn’t live

      under the same roof. Maybe those who are offering their negative

      opinion on relocating the freeloaders should offer the freeloaders a

      place to live instead.

      There is no easy solution – it will be difficult, but something has to

      be done for your own sanity and household survival as well as the

      education of the one who is unwilling to help themselves, or anyone else.

      Just my humble opinion
