Young Adult Problems
claudie1234 · 17/02/2020 20:04
Daughter is an adult but acts like a teenager. She doesn't answer texts or her phone when you need to contact her, doesn't ever tell you where she is, acts rudely when you ask her questions about anything and you have to pick topics of conversation very carefully. She now works full time and I thought that she would grow out of it. All I want is a grown up relationship with her and some friendship. She refuses to sit and chat about anything, stating that I am nagging and controlling and will then disappear off to her boyfriend's for days on end. Not sure whether to tackle this behavior or ignore it, help?!!

It’s hard to gauge about the chat thing. She doesn’t really have to talk about her private life to you unless she wants to. Is that what you mean?
However general lack of civility and rudeness - you don’t have to put up with.

Does she pay you any rent? It might be time to take her out for dinner and discuss some ground rules.

Maybe she needs to move out? Absence makes the heart grow fonder...
