Well That Sure Didn't Take Long

Monday, February 18, 2013

For my daughter to show me what her sudden change of heart was all about.

Motive #3
"OR is this just another attempt to gain financial support and/ or favors like she has done before?"

She called yesterday (Monday) asking if I had given anymore thought to giving her $150 a month for a year so she could quit her PT job and focus solely on school. I told her after last week's explosive conversation that I didn't feel the need to. She asked me to seriously reconsider and talk it over with her dad. I told her I would inform her dad of what she wants. So I told him after supper as well as discussed with him how I feel about the situation (not in favor of it). He agreed to it anyway. $150 a month, not a penny more for 1 year. As for me, I now feel I got played once again. By both of them! emoticon

    Try not to dwell too much on this and will continue to pray that she stays "nice."

    If you think she might not be serious about focusing on school if she doesn't work, why don't you add some conditions to the $150 a month - good grades, a minimum GPA, whatever you think she might actually do? Tell her the money will stop if she doesn't meet your conditions. And put it in writing!!!

Good luck! Hope everything goes well!
