Struggling with guilt!!!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I am struggling with issues with my daughter. She is hateful, disrespectful, and we fight constantly...I know this is not unusual. BUT, EVERYDAY! I am trying not to let it get to me so I will stuff my feelings w/food. THAT IS NOT GOOD!!!
I should say, she will be 17 next week and we do not get along because I have set boundaries and rules. (She is my husband's youngest). She calls me names and writes on her mySpace e-mail that I am ............(can't put on the page) I told her that was unacceptable behavior. I am going back & forth..Should/Shouldn't I have read and logged off her page. But it is my responsibility to teach and train her so she will follow the rule in life. How do I not feel guilty. I know I am doing the right thing. I just don't always handle it correctly. I yell too, too much. Any body have suggestions? I haven't had time to exercise and my blood sugars have been up. I think it is because of the stress.

Any suggestions---GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

    WELL I HAVE A DAUGHTER OF MY OWN THAT HAS BEEN DISREPECTFUL LIKE THAT SINCE SHE WAS ABOUT 16. IT HURTS, IT MAKES YOU MAD. BUT BEING LIKE "HER" IN RETURN ISN'T THE RIGHT THING TO DO OR THE RIGHT WAY TO ACT. I'VE BEEN THERE DONE THAT TOO. I THEN FELT LIKE CRAP ABOUT MYSELF.LOVE CONQUORS "ALL" EVIL, THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID. SO IT IS WITHIN OURSELVES THAT ONE MUST START TO CONVEY THIS MESSAGE. I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I FALL VERY SHORT FROM GRACE. I THANK GOD I'M NOT PERFECT, NOR WILL I EVER BE. I NEED FORGIVENESS, AND MY BIBLE SAYS IN ORDER TO RECIEVE IT I HAVE TO FIRST GIVE IT. SOO, HOPE THIS LITTLE INSIGHT HELPS. GOD BLESS YOU BOTH ON YOUR JOURNEY.( P.S. KIDS HAVE IT REALLY HARD NOW DAYS, IF WE DON'T LOVE THEM THERE'S A GAND MEMBER OR SOME PERVERT OUT THERE WHO WILL.)GOD BLESS."DRU"

    Oh boy teenagers.....remember you are the adult....do not let her suck you into a battle of words....Set the boundaries with consequences and stick to it....scripture says to speak the truth in "Love and Kindness." this was the hard part for me...I very often sounded hard and now I regret some of that. But I still believe they must know you mean what you say....if you can not back it up.... don't say it. Shock her with your cool calm determined attitude...tell her you love her but you are the boss! My youngest is now 26, we have 4 children, 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grands...I have lots of hard earned knowledge about children and teenagers...but no one will let me practice my skills though....just remember this to shall pass.
