My daughter turned 18 in May. Since then she is working two jobs, neither full time. She took a job that is 30 miles from home, but near her boyfriends house. Out of 7 days in a week, she sleeps in her own bed, 2 maybe 3 times a week. When she does come home it is usually late, and leaves by 8 the next morning.
I have 4 young boys, her brothers, that are watching her very closely. I cannot put my foot down, it seems, because Daddy and I are not on the same page.
When she is "away" she does not eat well, is constantly sick, around lots of people that are smoking, stays up and drives around until all hours of the night. Sleeps constantly. I do not think she is involved with drugs. Thank God for something. She stays with her deadbeat boyfriend that does not want to work. I got together with her one day and picked her up and spent the morning with her, she SMELLED TERRIBLE.
When she does come home, she leaves me her pajamas in front of the washing machine expecting me to wash them. I have had enough. She either needs to be part of the family, or she needs to move out. I am tired of being walked on, and I am sick of seeing her like this. My husband thinks this is the normal way things go.
I feel trapped.
Does anyone have any advice?
