  • Let the law handle it. She's a big girl; she can take responsibility for her choices, and it sounds like you have your hands full without trying to solve your daughter's problems for her.

  • I feel sure that you have a bunch of typos., since I doubt you are raising 20 little ones
    so if you could make this more clear, we might be able to help.

    The 30 year old needs to pay for her own actions as do the other adult children. It is very hard not to protect them and try to "save" them from themselves but in the end if we do not let the feel the consequences , they never learn to stop the behavior that gets them the problems they have.
    As my FIL says, you have to let them fall, so they can learn how to pick themselves up.

  • Daughter ...she is 30o
    Your daughter is 300? 3? 30? Confused?

    25 and 23 year deal and More raisin
    These kids are drug dealers?
    What does dried grapes have to do with anything?

    I am raising. 20little ones nieces kids and have 2 more kids at home
    You've got 20 little ones, a niece's kids and 2 of your own?
    That's 24 kids. Can't the older ones help with the younger ones?

  • Let her live the consequences of her actions and hope she learns from her mistakes.

  • This is just such bad English (it is English isn't it) that I'm having trouble. I believe my 7 year old could do better. You just have newbie written all over you.

    If this was real you'd know that at 30 your dd is an adult and needs to take responsibility for her own actions but since I have my doubts let go for it. Take your 20+ children that I'm sure are squeezed into a 2 bedroom house and start your own football team.

  • She is an adult. She made her bed, and she must lie in it.

    Please learn to use "delete".
