My 19 year old daughter has chosen a boyfriend that we have tried to get to know but, the problem is the more we know the more we do not like him. She ran away from home for 11 days and then came back but, was only respectful for a few weeks. Now, once again we are back to arguing about this boy. We have asked her to move out if he is her choice as we want nothing to do with him. ( A little about him - he steals, he admitted to lying about being in the witness protection and he told her he was 24 then changed it to 19 and now once again he is saying he is 24.) I know we can't choose for her but, we do not want her living in our house and exposing this person to her younger brother and sister. She has no where to move at this time. He can't help as he lives with his parents and all her friends are either living at school or with parents who have said no. She is so angry with us over this which leads us to fight about almost everything. She has finally agreed to go to counseling next week so I really hope she can work on why she resents us so much and why she can't be a better judge of character. It is so hard when they want to be grown up but, there choice are very immature. Wish me luck!
