My 30year old daughter has never changed.

I am new here. But after what I have read it seems so many of us mothers are always on the receiving end of bad verbal abuse and disrespectful behaviour from our daughters. It never seems to end. My daughter from a very young age has always talked rudely and been very cruel to me. She is now nearly 30 years of age, and nothing has changed. How do as a mother can I continue to be strong?

Agree w/ the others. If you tolerated it when she was younger she never learned to be better. You can not parent your 30 year old daughter. You can continue to tolerate it... or you can tell her that you won't be spoken to in that way and cut off contact unless/until she decides to change on her own. It's up to you to decide which is more important to you at this point.

If you allowed the poor behaviour to begin with, and did not correct it at that time, what do you expect now? Children who are not corrected for improper behaviour become adults who don't know any better.

If she was speaking to you this way when she was young, and you accepted it, why would you expect it to be different now? What consequences did she have for speaking to you like this when she was young? Ultimately, though, you have somehow allowed this to continue.
