My 31 year old daughter and my 3 year old grandson has been living with me for 3 years and I love being here to help; however, my daughter is s disresptful to me. When I tell her she is she tells me that I need to stay out of her live. I truly try to communite with her but unless it's about buying items that she can't afford she doesn't want to have conversations. Here's the last text message I received from her after I asked if she would watch a political video that I found and thought she would enjoy it, and thought it would open up a line of communitcation: "Just because I live in this house does not mean I am an extension of you. I have my own life and things going on with me. Mine. My own emotions, which are valid for me to have at the times I see fit, not you. When this becomes understood, as it is the only healthy way to live, we will have less problems." She continually yells when things don't go her way and then storms off and sends numerous text messages. How do I find a way to communicate and have a wonderful relationship with my daughter.
