I have an 18 years old daughter who just graduated from high school. She's leaving to USAFA in less than a week. We had an argument. She moved back in with her father and she's not talking to me. I have asked for sincere apology. She's very bitter and not reconciling before she leaves. What should I do?
It started off with sibling rivalry that ended with me and my 18 years old daughter. Argument happened the night of June 11, I said things I regret saying. I told her she's an adult, she has a lot of money, purchase your own ticket and go to Colorado Springs now! That same night she threaten to leave. I apologized to her for what I said and I asked her not to leave. She left anyway, she started walking to her boyfriend house but I followed her and beg her to come home. She walked around our subdivision while on the phone with her boyfriend until her phone battery died. I asked her again to come home. She didn't want to get in my car so she walked back home. I followed her until we got home at 1am. At around 3am in the morning, she left the house and walked 2 miles to her boyfriend house. I didn't know until I got a text from her boyfriend to let me know that my daughter made it to their house safe and sound. He said he was on the phone with my daughter until she got there. He told his parents my daughter was coming over but he didn't tell his parents my daughter was walking to his house. This whole thing made me very upset and obviously we can't understand one another's hurt. I reached out to her yesterday morning but she refuse to talk and reconcile. I told her I love her until the day I die. I suppose to fly to Colorado with her but she doesn't want me to fly with her. She wants her dad. My daughter and her father did not have relationship until all of these happened. I encouraged her before to continue her relationship with father but she refused until our argument. I don't know what to do. Please help.
