You make sure the child has the comforts he needs, and you stop providing for the father. Who feeds him? Stop making his dinner. Stop even bothering to buy food for him. Stop giving him money for ANYTHING. In fact, I'd probably take out the lightbulbs in his room and tell him he couldn't use my electricity until he starts contributing to the bill. There are many ways you are actually enabling him.

all the more reason he should have been getting his shit together...........I can understand your delima..........like I said stop doing things for him, everything......give him food and roof over his head that's it..........he should be willing to do whatever it takes to find work and start paying his way to eventually get a place for himself and son........don't even watch grandson for anything other than a job interview......
