I have a only child. A daughter who is 18 and in her first yr at college. She comes home twice a month. She is doing pretty good with her classes. I was a very involved mother and monitered alot. She always had a curfew. I always insisted on knowing who, what, where, but I did let her experience some things. We are a non drinking family because of alcoholism in my family. My dtr has a small group of friends at home and a new small group at college. They ALL drink and party. Many smoke pot. She has confided all are sexually active. Everything we raised her not to be. She says even tho they all do these things she doesn't. I don't really know how you can hang with these types and not. But, whatever I realize I can't control her. She is who she is and not me. BUT any advice on how to stop worrying, lecturing, and driving myself nuts??? Can anyone relate to what I am saying and have any words of wisdom?Answer Question

Mine are 39 & 34, and I still worry about them all the time. Each night before I go to sleep, I pray for them to be be safe, healthy, and happy. It gives me peace. It's not much in the way of advice. I hope things get better for you.
