Cards printed up?

You sound a lot like my aunt. Her daughter is now 34 and still lives with mommy because she is too afraid to be out in the world on her own. She also goes from one relationship to another because nobody is ever good enough for her. They refuse to baby her and take care of her. Oh, did I mention she started sleeping around like there is no tomorrow once she started college?

I, on the other hand, was independent at a very young age. I used to go to the mall when I was young...all by my self. I used to buy my own clothes by myself. Go to school on my own.

I am now almost 27. I never did drugs, I don't drink, I don't smoke and I am extremely independent and resilient.

I am not saying what the other mother did was okay but your daughter sounds like she wouldn't know what to do with herself if she were on her own.

Whoa lady, you're crazy if you think anyone is going to want to be friends with a kid with a parent like you.

Which, of course, is why she posted here asking for peoples' opinions. It only makes sense, afterall.

I feel like...When I was that age I was always somewhere without a ride for some reason. And my mom always came and got me. Not a big deal.

Yup- someone brings up inconsistencies that occur in her story and she never returns to the thread..

like, for example-
The whole point of her thread was that her daughter was left alone, but according to the below statement, she had a friend with her the entire time. It seems like quite a big exaggeration to me. When I was 13, sometimes I would be dropped off at the mall with friends and other times my mom would drop me off alone. She had a cell phone and a friend with her. I do agree though that the mom should have been more responsible, but I think the OP's authoritarian parenting style is not the best way to go.
