My daughter graduated the last school year. Had a scholarship for a college wasn't much but enough to to get started. She had $26000.00 from a drunk driver hitting us knocked out her teeth. It would have after the surgery left her with $13000.00 she blew it all. Now needs $5000. 00 to finish all the work. Last summer she went with some friends to a porsha parade came home moved out. Before the trip she wanted to stay here and go to school. Now for the real what to do. I gave her a gmc envoy. Tried to get her to put it in her name been trying for 2 months. She's been lieing about doing it. And driving around with no insurance with the suv still in my name. I have begged so many times to get the truck out of my name. Now I have a bill for toll roads of a $215.00. She is being disrespectful to us in so many ways. I went and took the suv back.
Now she's even more mad at us. I feel like she has left me with no choice. I try to explain to her why and she just won't hear it. She just tells me that u want her out of my life. Well she's basically out cause she never calls or visit. What advice does any of you mommas have I am at a lose I am sick can't eat can't sleep cry all the time.

Why are you enabling her? Don't explain. Don't argue. Let her know, she is an adult, she is making her choices, She can live with them.

She is legally an adult, and she must learn to live with the consequences of her decisions. You should not allow her to drive a vehicle registered to you if she's going to be irresponsible with it. You should not help her with her school fees if she had the money and wasted it. You're her parent, and you want to help her and protect her, but she will have to learn some lessons the hard way. What you do now, is be there for her IF she can treat you with respect. You also have to respect her, and her "independence". Eventually she should realize what is the right thing to do, and hopefully it won't be too late to make something of her life.
