Re: 18 year old daughter
Had you done your jobs as parents, you should be glad she is thinking for herself and making her own decisions. One of the hardest things we have to do as parents is to watch our children make decisions we may not agree. But ultimately it is their life. All you can do is love them, support them when they fail and celebrate with them when they succeed. Your children are just your wards temporarily. By the time they get to adulthood, hopefully you have taught them to be independent self sufficient people, able to think and act in their own best interests.
