I have three daughters, 32, 29 and 26. Their father believes in creating trouble between us. He is an ex alcoholic who did not offer any emotional support to them but he is quiet. I on the other hand am quite extroverted. My elder daughter asked me to get out of her house at 10 pm when I travelled to another country to help her with the birth of her first baby. She interefered in a conversation I was having with my husband and I told her she should not have. She treated me very badly in her home asking me not to use her glasses etc. The second daughter messed up every education opportunity and now I pay a huge amount every month to fund her education and she still does not respect me. The third one has not spoken to me in five years and stopped talking after she took the last instalment of her college fees. She stole my eldest daughter's boyfriend and her anger with me was that I did not condone that behaviour although her father supported it. I feel very sad that despite all the love and support I have shown my daughters they have continued to treat me this way, because of their treatment of me, their respective partners also think it is okay to show me contempt. I feel so beaten down and disappointed with parenthood.
