This is hard:

I’m naturally a feeling person. And when I feel a certain way it’s hard for me to not feel that way anymore. As a parent, I want nothing but the best for my children. I don’t tell my kids how to live their lives but I do try to direct and guide them when it’s asked. For some reason no matter how I try to guide my daughter it always seems to be the opposite with her. She wasn’t feeling good yesterday and I as mom was helping her, but then her friend calls and takes her for ice cream. Talk about a slap in the face. I have had it with her. I feel like no matter what I do or say she will do what she wants anyway. And I want to help her, but honestly, I feel like she needs to bump her head and learn the hard way in life. No matter what I say it’s her friends always. Well, we are going to see how many of your friends will care if you caught COVID our not get a scholarship for next semester. How many of your friends are going, to be honest about you doing what you need to do for things to be better for you in the future? It’s frustrating because she is such a bright girl but just so naive when it comes to who has your back. I think it’s time for me to let go and let God. I have prayed about it and have spoken to her about it but only God can move her heart. We’ll keep me in your thoughts and prayers. This is hard for me right now.

  1. I’m not a parent but may not relate entirely to your position but maybe i can shed some light. Assuming your daughter is a young adult or teen, i think it’s just a phase of life we go through. I’ve been there myself and currently at 25 by God’s grace realised who’s truly got my back compared to my earlier years in adulthood. She’ll be fine and I don’t think you need to worry so long as she knows she can open up and come to you, she’ll do so when she’s ready. Same happened with me regarding my mother. Hope that helps, all the best
