My Daughter’s Deadbeat “Gamer” Boyfriend Is Living Off Of Us – Daily Dilemma
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today's Daily Dilemma:
My daughter’s 19 year old boyfriend moved in with us about 6 months ago. We are on a fixed income as is, and rolling coins just to get by. We started charging him $50 a week to stay here which to be honest doesn’t even cover what he eats, not to mention shelter, utilities and gas to drive him to work. I would be more understanding if I thought he was saving his money to get their own place, but he is always going out and blowing his money on things like video games. Games which he spends all his free time playing rather then doing anything to help out around the house. Ever since he went from part time to full time I’ve been hinting for him to chip in more with no reply. My husband wants to kick him out but I am afraid of what this will do to our relationship with our daughter. Should we charge him more and if so how much.
