As long as she is an adult, let her be. Give her some time to cool down, then you can attempt to have a conversation with her. Be willing to listen to her without defensiveness (I would suggest the same if I were talking with her) and be willing to compromise where possible. In the meantime, seek the services of a good therapist to examine yourself and how she may have learned this behavior. It was the best thing I ever did for myself, and it helped to repair the relationship with my own children.
I am a mother that decided to break off a 30-year friendship to be with a man I fell in love with who happens to be this best friends ex-boyfriend. My 26-year-old daughter disapproves of my decision, and has been very hurtful and disrespectful of me. Does she have this right to treat me this way, and should I let her disrespect me?
If my bf’s mother is OBSESSED w/ him (her 40 y/o manchild), still does his laundry, has voiced undue concern re: his/our financial choices, shows no interest in seeing/spending time w/ my toddler, is MANIPULATIVE, & acts threatened by me being a stepmother to his girls, am I nuts for staying, or should I just hold out for a man whose family is actually excited or (gasp) happy about me & my daughter?
