The level of disrespect our 18 year old daughter showers upon us is heartbreaking and undeserved. She was always a good student and outwardly "ok" however, at home she has always been very difficult. Now that she is legal age, she is worse than ever. I understand that every teenager "breaks away" at some point but what she is doing is cruel and deliberately deceitful and manipulative. It is so puzzling to see because I know full well the caring, loving family we have always been and the life she has had. My health is suffering as a result of the stress and I wish she had another place to live. I pray every day and feel as though I live with some sort of con artist who is hell bent on emotionally destroying me.
