      Is this person disabled or impaired in some way and that’s why they can’t/won’t/don’t work?
      If it’s an adult child give him/her a few months with a deadline to get a job and find their own place.
      You cannot do anything to silence them except be blunt and tell them you don’t pay the bills so keep it to yourself! and that you don’t want to hear it anymore.

      Again the only way to get them out is to give them a few months to find ajob, welfare and a place to live….They could look into low income housing.
      WE had to give our adult kids a date to move out by and so far so good they found a nice low income place that all 3 adult children plus their 5 children can live in.
      I will finally be virtually kid free in a week or so…….except my 14 yr old son naturally but he’s a good kid so no biggie.

      Subject: Budget101.com : How to convince someone to budget and save

      Hello, I have a problem as stated in my subject line, I want to live
      by a budget and save money but, there is a person’s in my household, a
      family member that doesn’t believe in putting money aside for a
      raining day.
      This person has been freeloading and etc… but, try to run everyone
      financial life. He/She has not work for 15 years and stress those who
      do work on buying things or pay bills that we feel that are not that
      urgent or worry about.
      We want to toss this person out along with their kid, we agree it will
      benefit us but, that would not sit right with our family as a whole.
      How can we silence this freeloading worrier about bills and convince
      them about the benefits of a frugal living ,budgeting,and saving money?

      We are at our end with the price of gas and things this individual
      will actively seek work but, they still will not help.

      Well, Thank You for your time,help,and gratitude.

      Best Regards,
      Oscar
