“We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore!”


We’ve had a bit more daughter drama here lately.  Her and her boyfriend called and asked us for money again the other day.  We told them we didn’t have any.  Her boyfriend got on the phone and said some extremely rude and nasty things to me.  He said even worse things in the background when she was talking to me.  Then the next day she came to the door wanting to have a shower here.  We told her that we didn’t appreciate being spoken to like they had on the phone.  She kind of sulked and went over to the neighbour’s where her grandma was.  They didn’t let her in there or give her any money either.  Her grandma cried after she left because her nerves were so bad.  None of us deserve this.

We didn’t hear anything from her for a couple of days.  No apology, nothing.  Finally, she came by and apologized.  We told her that if she treated us with respect, we’d treat her with respect.  My husband still hates her boyfriend and doesn’t want him to come around.  I don’t blame him after some of the things he called me.  I don’t care if he comes around either.

They’re still asking for money.  I gave her a little bit of change yesterday morning.  I can’t give her any more because I need to go grocery shopping.  I can’t get a lot because we’re really broke but we need almost everything, so I’ll get a little of this and a little of that.

Thanks for listening once again.  Till next time,

– Joyce.

  1. It must be so hard to know what boundaries to put in place with your daughter – on one hand she is taking terrible and advantage of you an being so cruel, but at the same time I can sense how much you love and want to help her. I hope that she is able to see soon how hurtful and wrong her actions are and gets herself on a better path. x

    • It’s getting a little easier to put boundaries in place with her. But it still hurts when we have to go the “tough love” route with her. It hurts when she’s always asking for money that we don’t have. We don’t receive any Baby Bonus for her, so any money we give her is being taken away from money that’s supposed to go towards expenses for our son.
