Live with filth or evict daughter



December 12, 2018 - 9:44 AM

Dear Carolyn: I bought a house about a year ago and my daughter and her three kids moved in with me. I am single and live downstairs in the in-law suite with a roommate who is my friend.

The children are 13, 10 and 2. My daughter is 30. And to say they are lazy — and will not under any circumstances clean anything — is an understatement of Biblical proportions!

My only request for her living here was to please keep the house clean. My daughter does not pay any bills here, just my roommate and I do, and our space downstairs is always clean. It is just a kick in the teeth when they are so disrespectful. I keep asking, yelling, demanding, talking, but nothing! My friend suggested we take all the dishes, cups, glasses, silverware, box them up and just give them disposable everything.
