My daughter (22 years) and her boyfriend (22 years) live with us and her older sister. They both have no respect for me and they continually live in filth and always turn a blind to it. When ever I remind them both about cleanliness and hygiene and how it also affects the rest of the household, they both complain that I should mind my own business. In fact they say a lot worse than that. My daughter never cleans up after herself and eats in her room with her boyfriend and runs our kitchen out of croquery and utensils. When I remind them that we have run out of plates and knives and forks for ourselves to use, it is met with aggression and they both storm into the kitchen and bang the croquery down on the sink and resume to their room. Her boyfriend is always aggressive towards me when I ask him to help my husband to take the rubbish out or help with outside chores and even to clean up the bathroom once he's finished using it. My daughter calls me mean, because she says I upset her boyfriend when I remind him of their responsibilities to the household. I don't know, I give up. I worry about my daughter moving out with her aggressive boyfriend and that's why I've put up with it for so long. Neither of them show me any respect, so I'm all tapped out. Any advice would be gratefully received.
