I am a empty nester who has four adult children. My Son doesn't ask me for anything and cares for his family the way a man should. My daughters are not responsible at all. I'm having problems with my 23 year old daughter who decided she no longer wanted to care for her two children and gave them to the father through the courts. Now she has another baby who she is always needing things for. She called me and cursed me out because I have a choice. I chose not to pick up my 2 grand daughters on Friday to spend the night. She cursed me out like I was a random friend. This is a girl who got arrested in Maryland and I bailed her out along with my husband who is not her father. I paid for our trip to go down there for her court date. She didn't make her other court date in which I gave her the money to travel with. She spent it and cursed me out. After she had the baby she needed baby stuff. I paid for it. Is seems like I'm good enough to pay for stuff but not good enough to be respected. She cut off her nose to spite her face by disrespecting me cause I'm not having it any longer. All I want is to be happy with the years I have left and I'm not gonna tolerate being disrespected by my own children.

I would say to your daughter not to treat u like that and that you are not paying for everything parents that have bought the kids up deserve a life too once there kids more out. Good luck

Is she your oldest? My daughter is the oldest and she has that same entitlement behavior now I don't favor one over the other but my parents on the other hand have beyond spoiled my child beyond repair. It's hard to say no to your child specially when grand babies are involved. This is a hard one. I would suggest to not give her money but instead if you want to support her as a mom provide her with like going with her to the court dates or take her shopping to get what the baby needs. Also keep talking or trying to talk to her cause at some point she will get it. Just hope it's sooner then later.

You need to stop paying for things for her then. Stop being treated like her personal bank.
