I'm at wits ends with this kid. She is the oldest of 3 the other 2 are a boy 12 and a girl 3 years old. She is now a senior in High School and will graduate with her diploma plus her cosmetology license. She is a cheerleader and is hard working outside the home. She has been working for a year now and gets pay $500 every other week.
She has been buying her own lusuries since then but wastes money as if it grows on trees. She recently purchase her own car which is still in the garage because she doesn't have her drivers license yet. She will go for her license next month. Things keeps getting bad for us financially and I just recently talk to her about pitching in at every pay check to contribute and help. She totally refuses to it and has become very very disrespecful to me and even said that "Im no body to make her pay for anything" she even said "that I'm becoming one of those parents that their kids end up killing the parents". I can't talk to her without her screaming at me and harrasme. She can be the sweetest person one minute and become an evil monster yelling at me in a minute. Everything is fine as long as everything goes her way and she is not asked to turn the tv off and do a chore.
I'm so at wits end that I want to be the kid and run away.
