My 16 year old daughter is crying because she is "sorry that we don't have any money" Which is the truth. We are barely surviving and she is going to the prom, wants to do her nails, hair done, she is getting her drivers license and wants a car, etc.... she is crying and saying that she is sorry and doesn't want to put pressure on us but she is very sad. Her dad and I are divorced, she lives with him, and he's real estate career is in the dumps now and I'm disabled and unemployed. I am looking for a job and going to school, also waiting to get a settlement money for my disability but it keeps on dragging. I feel guilty and ashamed that my daughter has to carry this burden. I feel like I'm not a good mom and it breaks my heart.
