I have a 19 year old daughter that has gotten her way for 19 years now. Whenever she wants something she gets it. I am a divorced mom of 2 years and her father gives her anything she wants ans buys her gifts all the time. Her Uncle pays her phone bill and buys her food and gas just about every day. She has no respect for me at all and I do what I can with having nothing but my honest love for her. I Know that she goes out drinking and getting high every night and comes in at about 4:00 or 6:00 am and sleeps all day, then gets up and might go to school , which she is a good student there. She is going for her cosmetology degree. She does not go all
the time and still has good grades. I just am at my wits with her and i do not want to kick her out with the way the economy is and she really has no place to go but with the wrong people and I know all her friends, and they are not the best of friends. We just had an argument about her cell phone that she took from her brother and now will not give it up until she gets another one which she wants her father or uncle to buy for her. I have said to stop it and let her see as to what it will take to not have things that she wants.
The problem I am having is I love her and I do not want her out yet because she could not do it on her own. She does also have a job which starts this week but still. I just want to know as to what I can do to get her to understand that she can not have or get what she wants all the time and stop bing the boss of me like she has been. When she does not get her way she can be a really unpleasant person to be with. She will lose her friends for a few months and take them back because she knows that she can't be with anyone else and she does not like living where she is because all her friends are the same way towards their moms the same way and they all give in but I try not to.
Loosing my mind over this.
