difficult child has had a weird month or so. She's moving to new places even faster than previously. The only "positive" kinda sorta is that some of these moves were probably things that were either not her fault or she had little to do with. For example, she moved into a place that within one week, the toilet broke down and it turns out the landlord knew all along that there were major plumbing problems. Then, when the toilet stopped working, she asked us to give her $2000 to fix her plumbing problems. Hmmmm....perhaps a difficult child landlord too. Anyway.....my question.... difficult child seems to get into many dilemmas simply 'cause she can't say no to folks. There are too many "far out" unbelievable/not to be believed stories to tell and it would just wretch my guts to tell them all. When we tell her to speak up for herself (some of these instances she is clearly being taken advantage of...ANYONE could see it), she'll say "I don't want to be a bxtch." Yet, difficult child has NO problems saying no to mom and dad and sometimes borders on being a real bxtch with us (although that NEVER gets her ANYWHERE with us.) So, your thoughts/experience.... iIs this a total difficult child thing or does being adopted and possibly having some attachment stuff thrown into the mix have a little something to do with this problem of not being able to say no to people and allowing oneself to be taken advantage of?????? Thanks.
