Hmmmm… they’re both 20? Yikes.  Doesn’t sounds like something they’re going to grow out of. Sounds like they’re both just a bit spoiled and entitled. I wuiold just cut the aprong strings and let them figure it out.

You are facilitating their behavior and not doing them any favors by doing so. Time to drop the guilt because they are milking that for all its’ worth.

Princess #1-no longer allowed to visit the family home unless you are there. If that means changing the locks, so be it. Her bags are isnpected before she leaves after a visit. No more requests for money will be entertained.

Princess #2-Again, change the locks and don’t allow her in the home when you are not there. If she is disrespectful to her Dad, she leaves- NOW.

princess 1

stop lending her money, don’t invite her over if she’s stealing. Go to get place and don’t bring valuables.

princess 2

stop giving her money. If she’s not even able to be mildly respecftul, why would you give her handouts? If she can’t clean up her things, take them away. Just like a 5 year old. Your house, your rules. If she doesn’t like it, she can move out. 

They’re both adults. You’re not financially responsible for them anymore, and giving them money only enables their behavior.
