This mother can no longer stand her own daughter, who has become undrinkable over the years. Tired, she sometimes hesitates to involve social services!
Helene (assumed first name) is at her wit’s end. In a long testimony published on the Mumsnet forum, the mother of the family opened up about her very complicated relationship with her daughter. “I think I hate her,” she confessed. In particular, she described the deplorable attitude of her offspring: “She royally does not care about authority and she is rude. She never listens to me and never listens to her teachers. She never questions her behavior and does not never apologizes. She lies all the time, manipulates everyone and has stolen from my purse before.” According to her, her eldest tyrannizes her little sister and is constantly late for school.
Completely overwhelmed, Hélène said she was completely lost. A heavy situation that the mother of the family no longer supports: “She is nice to me only when she wants something. If I don’t give in, she throws a tantrum and becomes horrible again, and if I give in, she becomes horrible again. Her big brother doesn’t like her – they never talk to each other. My mom thinks she’s too vulgar and she uses her dad to get what she wants (we’re not together anymore). I don’t know what to do with her anymore. I don’t I don’t like her, I hate spending time with her and sometimes I consider calling social services to take her away.”
“There’s a light at the end of this dark tunnel”
To her surprise, Hélène was heard by other parents who had gone through similar experiences. The one who thought she was being insulted as a bad mother received a wave of support in the comments. “I’ve felt the same way before, it’s horrible. I want to tell you there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel. My child is now a young adult and has grown into a lovely human being. , who excels in life and we get along very well” confided a young mother. While another advised her to call on a therapist to allow her daughter to put words to her ailments.
