Some decisions are hard to make but they are extremely neccessary. My daughter and I have been bumping heads, mainly because she has decided that being disrespectful is her new wave. As any good parent, that is unacceptable. So when she tip toes over that line, I march her right back over that line. I have realized that she shows everyone else respect. So what’s her issue with me?
Now I know I have pull your guys coat tail to an issue that had arise with her and we are dealing with that. Among those things I have got her seeing a therapist to help her deal with these issue and issue with her self esteem.
Also, during this time I have been going through it. Processing all this and dealing with my own depression issues. While seeking someone to help me deal with everything. One being a single mom, really dealing with my mom’s death, my grandmother, my son being diagnosed with Autism, and teenagers and for a good while taking care of someone else’s child without proper help. Work issues to boot. A lot right, I’m broken.
So with home life things got to be way too much and my daughter isn’t helping the situation. After talking to her dad, we decided she needs to go with him for a few weeks. Hopefully that will help her get her act together.
I’m a crossroads, knowing this is the best thing. Not wanting to make things worst and hoping we have time to heal ourselves, deal with these issues and come back together and get back to our mother/daughter relationship we are used to.
Going home today knowing she isn’t there is weird. Part of me feels like less of a mom. I’m use to her being there. Only gone for a few days.. hopefully this decision helps and doesn’t back fire.
