my 14 yr. old gd (i,ve had her for the last 5 yrs.) well, we got into an argument aabout being self-centered. I told her about our vacation plans and she said "I don't want to go, so I don't have to" I told her "you're going" well it became a match. She quickly calls mom and complains. I know mem doesn'tstand up for me as she is more of a friend to gd than a mom.This is not any easy job. I know gd would love to be with mom but I don't see that happening. Mom is a felon based on drug charges. She just moved 60 mi. away as a friend got her a job. She has no means of taking care of her 2 daughters. The good thing is gd has communication with her as she went m 5 yrs without hearing from her for months at a time. Mom is clean 8 months due to 6 in jail.I watch their time together and I envy it. I feel like the bad guy. I hurt.
