One of mine moved back in months ago (dad was going to have him pay rent due to being 21) and the other just turned 18 (just graduated from HS) recently there have been tons of fast food boxes littering the living room and kitchen. I am upset as neither pays any bills (including cell phone, car insurance or anything) our fridge is always stocked full. Now my 18 year old needs help with her college textbooks, I don't mind helping out but her account is attached to my husband's and all her purchases have been for fast food! She has no money. I just would like some advice on how to approach this? I don't mind them occasinally spending their money on fast food but we never eat out like that and I would like them to learn to budget? My biological daughter is upset with me becuase when she gets her job I am going to make her pay her cell phone bill; I feel that even though she is young she still needs to learn to pay bills. We have 6 all together and it worked with 2 out of the 6 so far. Any ideas would be great!
