  • Your grown daughter left for 6 months and left her children for you to care for? and you're asking why she's so disrespectful? My guess is because she can be, she gets away with it. You allowed this to happen. She took advantage of you and you allowed it - so she sees you as someone to use and take advantage of, not someone to respect.

  • Your first mistake was taking care of her kids when it was her job to do... You let her have her way, and I'm guessing that wasn't the only thing you did to give her what she wanted. From the sound of it she's a spoiled rotten brat. I would just move, if they're grown, you should be able to do as you please. Make them accept responsibility for their own lives, and you get on with yours...

  • I agree with the two PP.
    Something else I've noticed with kids these days (beween12 and 21) is their lack of respect for their parents. I have found this is because the parents were lacking in their parenting. They allowed the kids to walk all over them and there wasn't a shred of discipline. If discipline was there, it wasn't enforced. The trend I have noticed is that kids who had solid discipline were those kids who appreciated their parents and gave them the respect they deserved. They made good choices.
