Hello--

I'm going through a big dilemma. My little sister just graduated from college and can't find a job so she moved in with my parents and started working at our family bakery.

She's 23 years old and she is taking advantage of my parents. Are there any parents out there who have had this experience. What advice can you give me?

Taking advantage how? She's working for the family business not playing video games in the basement.

Exactly. If she can't find a job, what would you prefer she do?

Exactly! She'd be taking advantage if she was sleeping in until noon and watching TV all day. Looks like a win/win to me. She got a job, and your parents got an employee.

News flash: The economy still stinks.

You should be grateful for two things:

1) Your sister has a job.

2) Your family still has a business.

oops one more

3) Your parents have a place to live and are able to take your sister in.

I completely agree with this.

I really don't see a problem with this.
