going based on your post you are correct in your thinking he should be working even part time. nothing good can become from a 19 year old (Man) that is what he is now.sitting around playing xbox......unfortunatly its not your call his parents should set down the rules and follow thru with them.....i see alot of parents babying there boys whats up with that ppl...correct me if im wrong...i have 2 daughters one 21 and since before she finished highschool i warned her no sitting around work or school if further scooling then working part time...she has worked since paid her own way phone bill, clothes, bus fare , the younger one knows this rule and expects it ....no free rides everybody has to be a contributing member of the family when they are adults.......this probibly does not help you but your not nuts in your thinking....lol....mum and dad need to step up and expect him to
