What would you do if your 18 year old daughter didn’t want to try to find a job?

    The "daughter" bit is irrelevant.  The problem is that many jobs nowadays are useless busywork which need to cease to exist, so I would support her but point out that we need UBI.  As it happens, in real life she's on maternity leave right now and she's 26.

    When the daughter of 18 years does not have the desire to get a job, the daughter should be given married to a suitable person. Every girl does not have the aptitude to work.

    is she going to school?? is she proactive with responsibilities? cause kicking them out doesn't solve anything. kicking out your son/daughter will only make things worse. that is why there are so many young homeless kids living in the streets, under freeways, parks, parking lots etc.. if she just doesn't want to do either, then maybe there's is something emotionally going on with her and needs some sort of help, maybe see a therapist. if nothing seems to work. then, not bringing home anything that she requests or wants might want to make her feel the need to get a job so she can at least purchase the little things she wants.

    Buy her a lawnmower and don't let her back in until every blade of grass in the neighborhood is nice and trim

    Tell her she can go to school, get a job, or join the military. She's got one year then out.

    I'd tell her if she's not in education and not working she no longer has a place to live in my home.

    Let her enter the college first and then think about job. Motivate them continuosly.

    I'm assuming your 18 year-old daughter lives with you. So the answer is push her to look for work, and tell her she has to think about how she'll support herself when she's out of your house.  Remind her that sitting at home gets old, and a job can give her a sense of accomplishment.  Give her a deadline to find work, say two or three months from now.

    Tell her straight out--a job or get out. Period.

    Show her the door if she's not doing something else acceptable like in school.
