I have been divorced for 1 yr now & my ADHD, 20 yr old daughter is always against me. Yells, curses, disrespects me when I don't see eye to eye with her. Her dad and I were separated for a while before the divorce and he constantly told her things about me that were hurtful to her. I thought she understood they were lies because she has always lived with me and could see that what he was saying was because he was bitter. I've moved on with my life as he did too. I've tried to be patient with her but it's like talking to the wall. Her dad and I are in speaking terms again and he tries to calm her down but then that makes it worse and she argues even more. Does anyone have any suggestions for me because as a MOM, I'm hurting, desperate and don't know what to do anymore. Am I alone here?
