Hello, I am new here. I have an 19 yr. old son who is a US Marine and an 18 yr. old daughter who is a freshman in college. My son gets paid twice a month and yet he still calls home for mom or Nana to send him money. I don't know if he has his own money and just doesn't want to spend it on things that he needs. He has a roof over his head, food on his table (although he says it doesn't taste good, chow hall food), clothes on his back all paid for. My daughter still thinks she is in high school. I ahve talked to her about getting a job, but thats like talking to a brick wall. I have made her start paying for her own car insurance and her on internet, but she gets the money from her granparents. It gets discouraging to come home from work and she is sitting on the couch and the kitchen is a wreck and nothing is done. Sometime I think high school was alot easier.
