Detaching myself from daughters boyfriend problems :(

Jennifer - posted on 06/18/2014 ( 2 moms have responded )




I can't find the section I was in but saw lots of moms in the same boat. I feel hurt when she does and I just want her to be happy. How much should I keep my mouth shut and how much should I chime in. The writing is on the wall for her. She still in high school he leaving for college in August. I think it is causing tension between the two and she is crazy about him. Please help!

You kinda have to leave it up to her,The more you tell her the more she will resent you for it.She does have to see it for herself, just let her know that you will be there for her.I was in the same situation with my son.I really saw how his girlfriend was but he didn't like what I had to say so he stop telling me about her.

Honestly, I was in your daughter's situation. She will have to go through this one alone. There is nothing you can do really. The more you try to give your two sense the more she will get upset and not really think about the advice you have tried giving her. She will open her eyes eventually. Just make sure your there to help her when she really needs it!!
