My sister is a mooch she mooches off everyone she ''borrows'' money from everyone . She never pays her bills . She had a billion jobs but never kept them because she found them to boring . She comes to our parents house and has them look after her 10 year old daughter . And she is a hoarder that just sits around all day making people feel sorry for her so she does not have to work . She is also 35 years old and does not even look after her own child .

So, I know a person who was like that. Everyone around her was an enabler, always giving her money and everything she asked for. I kept telling them that just "because she's a family member, doesn't mean you're obligated to take responsibility". That same person has the intent to walk all over family in order to get what she wants, and it's probably the same for your sister.

Best thing to do is cut off any funds she's getting. If she has to be homeless, get her child taken away from her custody, lose government help and anything else that's keeping her at her situation, then so be it. She's gotta learn the hard way apparently.

And I'm not trying to be mean about it either. She's 35, she needs to clean up her act.

What's with sisters?
Sounds like my sister, too.

Don't cut her off, "tough love" is not the same as neglect, she needs help but is getting the wrong kind from some easily manipulated people.
If you don't want to give her money or favours then don't, if she asks for you to do so then you can offer to call a homeless shelter or a charity organisation but there's no good reason to kick her out short notice, that would be irresponsible and it's none of your business if her parents don't feel the same way you do.
