I have a 21 year old daughter who is a junior in college. She is mean, rude, evil and just all out disrespectful to me. She yells at me over the phone and hangs up in my face. She has a part-time job, however, I have been paying all of her expenses. She just basically blows her money. After yesterday, I have had enough. She has said some pretty mean and nasty things to me that has brought me to the sad reality that my daughter has NO respect for me at all. Her father does absolutely nothing for her and he gets all of her love and respect. That's something I don't understand. It is my fault because she is an only child and I have basically given her everything she wants. She has never gone without anything her entire life. Well life is about to get real for this diva. I have made a very hard decision to cut the financial ties. That's the only ammunition I have and I'm using it. She wants to live the life of a princess then she needs to fund it. I'm tired of being the whipping girl for her. She doesn't understand that when someone is doing everything for you, that you owe them a certain level of respect. It's going to be hard for me to do this to her but maybe she will humble herself and wake up.
