I have a co-worker who is struggling with her daughter who just graduated high school and will be moving away from home next weekend. She is an oustanding student, but mom and dad have literally spoiled their only daughter and given her absolutely everything she wants and they are now reaping the consequences of having raised a tyrant.
Instead of letting DD learn the consequences of her actions on her own, mom agitates the situation by making personal calls from her desk here at work, engaging in threatening, hateful conversations with DD which as we all know only pushes people farther away.
Please pray for this situation. Mom in her brokenness and hurt is bashing her daughter and taking the stiff-upper lip approach to deny her broken heart. Very sad.
