Okay, I have four children two of which are a boy 19 and a girl 20 . I was out of work for three months last year and I have to say my son stepped up to the plate and took on some of the bills in the house . since then he has helped out a little but I have never asked either of them for so called rent or anything . My daughter did not help during the time I was out of work in fact I had to drive her to work because her car had broken down and she could not afford to fix it .
My son has a full time job and makes pretty good money for a 19 year old (I wish I made the money he does at 19 ) . My daughter works part time at a fast food place and does not make enough to keep her car on the road . I feel guilty about asking them for anything is it not my job to take care of them ?
I feel like my son has been contributing but I feel like my daughter is just using my husband and I and I am afraid to put an ultimatum out there for her because I feel like I may never see her again.
What should I do ?
