No matter what I say or do, can't get my daughter to see the light. She moved out to live with her dad one yr ago. And ever since then I'm seeing more and more of her fathers traits stand out. No efforts given on her end. 16 yrs worth of motherhood with teaching proper values and manners thrown out the window.

Try backing off a bit and giving her space. Go ahead and initiate semi-regular contact letting her know that you love her and inviting her to do things w/ you (like dinner and a movie), but don't push. Be confident in the time that you had to influence her and hope that she'll find her way soon enough.

You can't force someone to see things from your perspective, and that's essentially what you are trying to do. I agree with Dove, you need to back off and give her space. You need to let her figure it out for herself.
