For the past three months my family has been heart broken over what my oldest daughter did.. She was in college, had a job and living at home doing just ok. She didn't like our rules at all and started to say she wanted to move out. We are a family that I thought gave her all the love and support she needed. My husband and I are both teachers and love being parents. We have had a lot of good times with our kids and thought we had a good family bond. So when this all happened, it took us by surprise and brought major heart ache to our family and still is. She got a boyfriend and that was her out. She quit school behind our back, moved in with him and then quit the job her dad and helped her get. This happened all in a month. He boyfriend is nice but the house she lives in is not. This is absolutely killing me inside. I want her to stand on her own two feet and be independent. I know she will do this in time. The biggest hurt is, she had pushed us away emotionally and I am not sure why. Even on my days off, she does not come here to see me. She has come for all the special events which is great. It is just a roller coaster of emotions. I was reaching out today because it is nice to know you are not the only one going through this.
