To make a long story very short..... I have a 23 year old nephew that has consistently for the last 3 years borrowed money from family. Especially my mother. My mother alone pays his rent, car payment, power, water, car insurance, grocery bill, and gas for his car. Plus whatever else comes up. This has made me sick to my stomache for years now, and I am past the point of being angry. He doesn't even try to get a job, he even lies and says he has put in applications. My mother keeps saying that she doesn't want one of her grandchildren to be homeless, but when is enough, ENOUGH. He goes to school part-time, This is actually the second time he has attempted, the first time my mother paid $2,000.00 for classes and he dropped out. He has done the most ignorant things and yet still lives bill and rent free. Please give me your opinion on how to handle this. I feel it has put my mother in a financial hardship now, and she didn't work at the same place for 37 years just to spend her retirement on a kid that doesn't want to grow up and help himself.
