I agree. She is obviously capable. Set up a time frame for her to get a job, go to school (or both) or get out and live on her own. You need to teach her that running her credit card up will have negative impact in the future. When she wants to buy a car or house; her credit will be in the toilet and she will need a cosigner. DO NOT cosign for a loan for her, ever. My folds would never have for me and i had to learn the hard way to pay my card off each month and never buy stuff I could not afford.

Tough love. Work up a contract for your adult vchild to live in your home. They need consequences. Parents carrying them is not a consequence. Do not pay her bills nor anything else
