My 36 year old daughter and her 3 year old daughter live with me. My daughter works at night and I take care of the little one. My daughter is a SLOB...the floor in her room is not visible and now the little ones room is beginning to look the same. My home has piles of things left ..as she comes home she leaves things...by the door, on the steps..tonight I took 4 pairs of shoes on the stairs for 3 days up. I have 2 laundry buckets full of papers in the garage ( since Christmas) ..I needed my dining room table to serve dinner. Papers gather on the kitchen table...we need the room to eat and they are moved to the dining room and when they become too much I move them to the garage buckets. She does not contribute to the household. She has a daycare bill and car insurance. She has not paid a credit card bill in months and now collection companies are calling. I have given her ultimatum dates...told her I would have someone come in to help her organize and she said not needed. I also gave her a book to do a budget and said that we could review it. She has never done this. Any ideas? I don't want her child to think that this is the way to live.
