Maybe it would be good to set a deadline for her to get a job and figure some things out. Look out to your community and help her find what resources are available to her. You love her, but this relationship is becoming strained because it’s too much pressure on you. In order to keep this relationship alive and well, it would be good to handle this with peace in your heart. That, you’re still there as support, but she needs to learn how to manage on her own. It might be helpful to create a 3,6 and 12-month plan, or something along those lines, with a move out date in mind, that is agreed on by you both. Ultimately, it might also be good to have a serious talk- with love in your heart, and with as much empathy as possible, to let her know how you’re feeling and how you want to help her get back on her feet. Let her know you believe in her, most importantly. Best wishes with this. x

Just sit her down and calmly tell her how you feel show her that you will still be there for her after she moves out by helping her find a new affordable place to move, or jobs, ect. Keep in mind to keep a calming atmosphere and try not to make anything completely negative rowards each other and most importantly walk away if it turns south like yelling and so forth. I wish you the best of luck

First of all, she is your daughter. You cannot think that way. You need to discuss the matter to her in a very calm manner. You need to help her in managing her child. As you mentioned she is just 20, it is very difficult for her. You need to be a bit understanding. She needs you right now. You can ask her to start doing some job to help the financial cause of the family. You should tell her that she is most welcome here. It must be hard for her too. You must spend more time with her and thus share what you feel. Keep spending time with her. It is stressful but I hope she will understand.
