I Dont Like My Daughter
It hurts my heart to say that I don’t like the eldest of my children. The more I give her the less she likes and respects me. We have never been close but that does not mean I would not do anything for her. She got pregnant at 17 and was very immature she was good in school but not street smart. We did not even know she had a boyfriend she was hiding him from us because he was a drug dealer. He gave up his parental rights my husband and I adopted the baby. We have been co-parenting with my daughter. He calls her Mommy my husband Dad and me Mom. I never intended to take the baby from my daughter just provide protection. We told her she would always be the Mommy which she wants to be only when friends and family are around other then that she does not want to do a thing for him. She works two jobs and goes to school sounds responsible but her two jobs are for her clothes and personal expenses, she does not provide a single dollar for the babies care, nor to contribute in the household. Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining about providing for the baby it just irritates me how irresponsible she is. The car she drives I bought for all three of my children to use but she refuses to let anyone else use it. She is constantly saying that I have to provide everything for her because her friend’s parents buy them cars and pay for anything they need. Now maybe I could see this if I had money but I am the only bread winner in a family of six. My other children don’t ask me for anything because they see how she drains me. Recently she has become more aggressive and argumentative I just can’t take it anymore but in order to have her leave I have to fight her for the baby or just let him go. I know she loves him but does not care to take care of him. She threatened to take him and has gotten him to tell me that I am an awful Mom. He loves me I am his only Mom I am the one there for him at all times. But I feel I have to let him go so she learns to be a mom and can then appreciate me. I am going to ask her to leave, I worry for the baby she is going to go from house to house with no real place to live. She does not make enough to live on her own. Also I am emotionally, legally and in everyway the baby’s parent. I posted my story so no one else repeats my mistakes.
