He wont sign on as he got left some money from his dad when he died. I brought him and his brother up on my own as his fathwr and I divorced when he was little so he never really new his dad. He talks to me like dirt sometimes and if I take a interest in things about him he tells me to mind my own buisness. Ive told him he needs to find a job now or sign on as he cant live here for nothing,he just storms off in a mood and wont talk to me, Im in tears most days because of this and my partner says I need to keep on at him,its driving me mad I so tired with it all.

Thanks for reply, things have improved I had a long talk and at least he is going to the job centre now and planning to go back college sept, he doesnt seem to be so angry at me now, I hope ive turned a positive corner with him. I love him and only want a future for him in these hard times. Thanks for your advice

This is going to sound harsh but kick him out and let him fend on his own. You and your parter do not need to put up with that and he is 18 and legally and adult. Eventually in time he will come around but you need to be firm and not let him walk all over you.
