Why can't I just stick to my guns and say enough?
My daughters both 28 and 31 have moved back in with mom and dad after my youngest one was mugged and had a gun stuck to her head and robbed downtown where we live. This totally flipped me out and we had the girls move back in with us. Since they're arrival the old habits of smoking, drinking beer, not helping, etc. have come back to haunt us. Was I crazy to let this happen? We were thinking about our daughters safety and now the oldest one who has a disability can't find a job after being arrested for assault due to a bipolar roommate that they lived with who was also mugged at the same time getting angry at her and throwing a coffee table at her in frustration of the mugging. She turned around and blamed my daughter for assault. This is on her record and she now has to go to court and defend herself. This is a girl who has a bachelors degree in communications and basically now dependent on the family for support and at 31? I have simply had enough but where can they go with no financial help? The youngest one is studying to be a nurse while the older one sleeps most of the day and can't get ahead. Depression has now set in and I am at my wits end.
