I am the single parent of a 22 yr old spoiled princess. Im not sure which bad decision of mine lead to her being such a lost angel but can i reverse the damage that ive done? here is a brief back story. I was 20yrs old and dating her father, after a foolish yet mutual decision we decided we should make a baby. When i was only 3 months into my pregnancy i found out that he was seeing someone else and i made the decision to walk away and never look back, i made the decision to raise her on my own. Since that day my entire existence revolved around her. My choice, My baby, My responsibility. She has never gone without or ever wanted for anything always had the best of everything. It became me and her against the world. I literally put my life on hold for her. Now she is 22 and she has absolutely no understanding of the real world. That life is not going to be handed to her on a silver platter. Now at 43 im concerned about how she will survive if anything ever happened to me. I didnt force her to go to college for several reasons and she was working until recently. I want her to find something that has longevity a skill, trade, career but she is not interested in anything or at least not sure what she wants to do. God forbid something happened to me tomorrow she would be lost. what do i do?
