I am the mother of an 18 year old daughter (turned 4 days ago). Long story short, I caught her lying, doing drugs, skipping school, etc. After long years of disrespect, etc. I sent her across town to her Fathers house (with promises of him helping). It turned into a them against me situation with her Father buying her love and her playing the princess. She has now moved out on her own. I have her stuff packed and he will move it on Sunday. Our only communication is through Facebook. She is completely rude and if we were to talk it would just end up in an argument. By using the computer as communication at least I can think before I speak and try to remain calm. Is there any advice that any of you can give me in dealing with this situation? Books to read that may help ease the pain?
