When Mom and Dad Disapprove
I really need your advise. We have a daughter who is 20 in college and living at home with us. She didn't date in high school, and only went on 2 other dates before she started dating her current boyfriend (21 yrs. old), which she has been dating for 8 months. Our daughter had a wonderful spirit and personality but recently we have noticed a lot of changes in her. My husband and I have witnessed awful anger and disrespect from this young man. Everytime we try to comfront our daughter about him, she gets very angry and defensive and we get into a shouting match and nothing get resolved. We do not feel comfortable about this young man, and feel he is a bad influence for our daughter. We have two other children older then her and they are in agreement with us, yet we cannot seem to convince her he is not right for her. We have asked he not come to our home anymore because the strain and stress it has put on our family. This recent request has cause more anger with our daughter and her boyfriend.There is so much stress on our home that no one talks in the evening, and she comes home and goes straight to her room, and any mention of his name makes her get very definsive. Has anyone been in this situation? and does anyone have any advise for us. How can I reason with my daughter and get her to see her father and I only want what is best for her? Please help us.
