My daughter has just moved back in with me after living with her father for two years. He had asked for a chance to have the kids since we divorced when they were 6 and 3. they are 16 and 18 now. We are good friends so we were able to sit and discuss it with the kids. Well now she is back with me. Her dress is really sloppy and I took her out the other day to go get her and her 8 year old sisters hair done along with mani and pedis. She wore her ex boyfriends pants, way too big with writing all over them. An ICP hat with the bill sticking straight up. I was embarrassed to say the least. I asked her to change and she told me that she was just being herself and stop trying to change her. Im not sure how to handle this without a huge fight. I want her to be able to express herself she is very artistic, but I cant have her going out like that. I know she is not my girly girl. Im just not sure how to compromise or if i should or what. Help I need some advice. I can be very controlling and not wanting to go that route.
