My husband and I Took our granddaughter in 5 years ago at age 14. Got her into the local high school where she graduated, paying for everything as well as 7 thousand for the first quarter in a private college where she quit right at the start of the 2nd quarter. She's now in a junior college, free tuition, have been paying for everything including her totaling out my car. She works and goes to school two days a week.
Now, the problem is she does nothing else. I do all the cooking and cleaning and I have to argue with her about her not helping out around the house.
What do I do? I was thinking of telling her if her chores aren't done on a weekly and daily bases and I have to do them then I will charge her room and board.
What do you think? What do I charge? I'm so besides myself and why does everything have to be like pulling teeth.
Tired of raising kids.... Help!
