Sibling issues..

We took my little brother in about 5 months ago. He wasn't being responsible at home, kept losing jobs etc. So he moved to our city with my DH and I to get a new start. He got a job about two months ago. In the last few weeks he's been late 4 times on the weekends because he drinks all night with the neighbours and doesn't get out of bed. Last weekend I woke up when he was supposed to get up just so I could ensure he wasn't late.

So this morning I find out he's 1/2 hr late for work this morning! Grr!

I don't know what to do. He's 19 - so an "adult". He doesn't seem to realize he's risking his job by being late. I suppose I could get him to tell me his weekend schedule every weekend and I could wake him up for his shifts.

We can't afford to take care of him if he loses his job. As of right now he pays us $200 a month to live here and that barely covers his food, let alone other expenses we pay for. If he loses his job we may have to kick him out, and that's not what I want to do. He does SO well during the week, but the weekends he falls apart.

Any suggestions??
