    Question How I say ?

    Hi there
    I want to express about something but I can't find a suitable word
    what do we call a person who depends on others everything he wants
    for example: he says to his mother" Please mom tidy all my mess"
    and he says to his friend: "Please, do my homework instead of me"!

    this person has a negative character, what do we call it?
    A dependent person? or what?

    waiting u..

    I don't think "lazy" is it
    I meant a person who depends on other as a negative way

    thanks guy

    Re: How I say ?

    My question is: is this person dependent on others because they aren't able or because they don't want to get things done themselves?
