Thank you to everyone who offered their support, guidance and insight this past summer when I was struggling so much with my issues with my daughter.

Just to let you know she moved back home recently and is all set up in her apartment like bedroom in the basement. She seems very happy and content and we are all just thrilled to have her back.

We both learned some tough lessons, especially me, but survived.

She is planning to attend school in January and is trying to figure out just what she wants to do with her life and that is just fine with me. I am here to support her in her choices.

Thanks again to all of you!!

I am enjoying the new relationship. I remind myself daily to stay out of her business, she'll come to me if she needs me and I am not here to be a policeman to her. So far its working. I don't have to fix anything, she's entitled to make her own choices but also to her own consequences.

I think she found out it's not so great and so easy out on your own. She dropped out of school, was working 2 jobs, trying to get an apartment with her bf who doesn't work very many hours. I think there was a lot of turmoil going on at the bfs parents house where she was staying and I think she might have missed some of the luxuries of home.

I really had to just let go, quit asking, quit trying to fix anything and everything and just let her work thru her ideas and plan and figure it out on her own. It's funny, because once I really truly let go of her and all my expectations of and for her is when she decided she was coming back.

That's what we were telling you. Keep it that way and you will start to forge a mentor relationship with your daughter which will develop into adult friendship. You'll just push her further away again if you fall back into your old ways.
