I will no longer give my daughter cash...She would give a sob story and I would give her money, then she would go to her father and get more, a family friend and more, ex-BF and got more, grandparents and get more.....we figured out that each time she came into town she would leave with at least $100....so I will no longer hand over cash. Now, if the baby needs pull-ups I will buy them or if he needs something else I will get it, but I will not hand her money. She has finally become more respectful of me and more careful with budgeting her own money. She no longer tries to guilt me into giving her things. I can't say she still doesn't break my heart sometimes, but I have to let her grow and make her own decisions and mistakes. I wish that were easier.

To handle yourself, use your head...to handle others, use your heart
I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
