My daughter will be 18 in 2 days. Last year we had to move an hour and a half away from where we had lived for 10 yrs. She was happy about the move. She was tired of the Drama at her old school. However, last night she informed me that since she will be 18 this week, she is moving back to our old town to stay with a friend and her mom. She wants to graduate at the old school. This has hurt me deeply. We bought her class ring up here in our new town...her grades are awesome. When she was at the old school, her grades were not good. Last night we got into a huge argument that ended with both of us crying most of the night. My daughter has never been away from home long at all. I tried to appeal to her intelligent side by giving her the pros and cons of her decision...but she has her head set on doing this. How do I deal with this?
