Ok, so I thought that my daughter and I would always be close. Yeah, right, what happen to that idea. She see's her father talk down to me, degrade me, order me etc. and now she is doing it. I tell her "no" and she argues with me as to why the answer should be "yes". She is always telling me to "zip it". I ask her to do something and she either does it when she wants to or not at all. Recently we went out to dinner with my parents and afterwards my mother complained that she was totally embarrased at how my daughter treated me in front of the other guests. My mother has also stated that she can only handle short periods of time with my daughter and that long visits are out of the question. In the last week or so, I have noticed my daughter, burping a lot. I have commented each time, stating that it is not "lady like" to continually burp and not say excuse me. She just laughs and says thats life. UGH!!!!! I am not only embarrased at how she talks to me, but I am hurt. I feel that I give her everything she needs. But she just wants and wants and wants. It's never enough. I know with her recent actions that I must change my ways with her. Not giving into every one of her desires. But I am a known "enabler" and I allow people to walk all over me. Someone, please help me get a handle on this situation before I just up and walk away for good!!!!!!
