Hello, my last post was in Dec. it is now May and my child went to college, until this time he has not chosen to show us his transcript so I do not know how well he has done. I feel that he did not put a lot of effort into school, " I made him go" his words not mine. I said that he could come back home if he went to school full time. My question, how long should we have to put up with a 21 year old adult who is looking for work but not putting much effort into it. He did go to school and he did hold down a part-time job but quit before they fired him. Every job that he had since leaving school has only lasted a few months. Now he is going to a larger city to look for work and will be staying with me. We do not get along very well but I am willing to help him if he is going to make an effort. How long should I give him to find employment. There are a lot of jobs for young adults if they are willing to make the effort. Where did the work ethic go for these young adults? I have no patience, my husband on the other hand is more lenient with him but it is now my turn to have to spend the better part of the week with him.
