Ugh..My dtr is now 18 & off to college in 2 months. It is time to let go and I can't! I don't trust her decision making. She has a rotten long term bf and is not on birth control because "she doesn't need it..I know what I am doing." She has questionable gf's ie: drunk every week-end, abortions, etc. She is a good girl, but so stubborn and immature. However time has said she is a adult. How do I let her go?Answer Question

I know what you are feeling. My daughter is about to go to college in August and, although has my trust, I worry about her decision making. She tends to think she can handle any situation and I fear that she will be too confident and put herself in situations that are unsafe. My son who is almost 21 has made mistake after mistake and I have spent so much time and money trying to help him. Each time I think he is "out of a hole" he tends to find a new one. He has had a problem with pot which has led to legal problems. In response to your question, I personally would find a way to make birth control a must, even if I had to use the excuse of "use it to keep you regular since you are going off to college and things get disrupted"..... I believe that even the smartest of girls need parental intervention!

Next question overall
Did anyone else get really really tired before labor started?
