My daughter is completely out of control

I have three grown up children two sons and a daughter. They are all grown up and still live at home. Whilst the two sons are lovely my daughter is rotten to the core. It all came to a head last night when she called me some despicable names, unfriended me on Facebook and too back a present she bought me when we went on holiday. I have asked her time and time again to go when we have argued, although I did think stupidly she was getting better, hence our holiday together but realise she is just rotten. She acts as if he hates me. Her father hasnt up until now got involved because he says we always get back together again and her brothers say it too. However last night I more or less said to her father that either she goes or I do. I was so upset that I actually left the house for a couple of hours. When I got home I spoke to her younger brother who then said if you ignore her for a few days and if you still want her to go (I do but she refuses) we will back you up. Her father has now said he will speak to her and I have actually written her a letter asking her to go. I realise I have been too soft and should have set boundaries for her a long time ago. I still love her because she is my daughter but I absolutely hate her. I am hoping I can stay strong and deal with this. I also think she has drink and drug issues but I have no way of proving the drug taking although I know certain drugs can cause severe mood swings. Wish me luck in doing the right thing

There are times when our children have to leave the family home and face the big bad world. I think your daughter will get a big wake up call by leaving and it could be better for your relationship if she did as well.
Good luck with it all, it's one of the hardest things to do as a parent.
