Off To Phoenix…

…I wish it was for shopping!  Nah…gotta pick my child up from the Airport.  She is done with her visit with her Dad. 
Unfortunately…she didnt quite graduate High School.  She still has some projects that need to get completed.  I am hoping that she will see the common sense part of all of this: Complete the project and get the heck out of high school.  I know that she has so much that she wants to do…
I don’t see the point in hooting and hollering.  She is 18…she has to make the choices now. 
I’m tired.

    Please, I know your daughter is 18, but please do everything in your power to still mother her and make sure she finishes school.
    I’m 25, reflecting over my childhood and teen years, wishing my mom had been more of a mom and less of a friend. She had the attitude that everything was up to me once I was “old enough”. And, for that reason, I was allowed to never get my high school diploma. Granted, I was very ill when I was kicked out of school for poor attendance, but as an adult now, I look back and wish my mom had done everything in her power to make sure I would succeed.
    I found your blog by doing some research on male chauvinist pigs for a friend of mine, and it’s purely coincidence that I read this entry of yours.

    As long as my daughter is living under my roof she will remain in school. I am very tired…but I am stubborn. I am guilty of over mothering my child. I will continue to try to guide in the right direction. But as the old saying goes…”You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink.”
    She is not happy with me right now but she does understand the rules in my house. But…that child is draining…I hate the entitlement attitude that all the kids her age seem to possess. I was always told that if I wanted something I would have to work hard to get it…and work hard I did. My daughter and her friends seem to think that everything should be given to them with minimal effort on their part…
    Unfortunately she is finding out that this is not so. I hope she realizes that this is the way of the world…life…before it is too late.
    Thanks for commenting…and good luck to you.
