Where Does It All End

I have been married for almost 30 years now to a wonderful wife and mother (and grandmother).

We have raised 3 children, aged 28, 26 and 20.


The elder 2 have grown up to become wonderful adults and are complete.

The youngest one is I believe very troubled with herself.

The youngest one is not the child we thought she is, despite a multitude of chances, assistance beyond thinking, love and support provided all along the way.

She is foul mouthed, arogant, ignorant, self opinionated and treats us both like something she has stood in.

It is almost as if it is all our fault for her life not being as rosey as she hopes for.

She gets free bed and board, free transport to and from work, free taxis to and from her friends etc etc...

I even give her money when she has none so she can go out and have fun at the weekends because she has spent hers.


Where the heck did I go wrong?

All I want is a little (and I mean a little) respect from her to her mother and to me.

I cannot control my anger when she pontificates and demands that we do as she says...It has brought me to the point where I am saying to everyone, enough is enough, she can go to hell.

How do I get a grip of myself?

I cannot take this anymore and want her to leave our home and get on with her own life.

You will no doubt have guessed that this rant was written in a rage, I find it good therapy but leaves me empty when searching for a way to sort it all out.

There simply is no talking to this child..

2 out of 3 aint bad...well said Meatloaf..
