I wish i had words to help, but i dont. My 18 yo daughter treats her 15 yo brother so horribly. She has actually developed germaphobie with ocd towards him. She will not touch anything he touched, sit on anything he's sat on, etc...to the point of him developing issues with trying not to cross her to escape her wrath. I share your heartbreak.

Hi all. My 18 year old daughter has a boyfriend who will soon be 21. He has been kicked out of his house (i don't know the circumstances or his parents). We've let him stay for a month do far. I asked what his plan was if not allowed to stay longer. He said he would live in his car. My daughter said she would go with him. My daughter has no job, no licence, has just graduated high school and had wanted to go to school she suffers from sever anxiety and panic attacks, and has chronic health issues that require regular and appropriate meals, etc... EVERYONE says i should cut him lose, and if she chooses to go with him, its her choice...and that she will cone back. I am terrified of losing my precious daughter and due to her mental and physical issues, don't feel I've provided her with enough life skills yet to let her go So, do i let him stay, even though it causes extra stress on my finances, health and relationship with my boyfriend, so i can jeep her here a bit longer to help guide her? Or do i tell him his issue is not ours and put my daughter at risk of making a bad decision? This is so much harder than i though it would be.
