My daughter moved in with me (for the 3rd time) about a year and a half ago. She lived with me when her first baby was born and I was there when she gave birth. I ended up moving out of state and she stayed with a man she fell in love with. It was so hard leaving them, but he wouldn't leave his family. After he beat her for the umpteenth time, she finally came home to stay with me. By this time they had a baby together. She is now 2. I have a mobile home on my property that I was renovating for them to live in. She now wants to go to Kentucky which is about 10 hours away to stay closer to her friends. I know she is doing it because she thinks it's best for her and the kids. There are no job opportunities here at all. She's working very hard on packing her things to leave in July. I can't seem to bring myself to help her. I've been hiding my tears and if I go and help her pack, I know I'm going to just lose it in front of her. I don't want her to see me crying. I don't want her to feel bad for doing what she thinks is best. I just can't seem to get myself to help her because it's like I'm saying it's ok or for her to get out. I know that not helping isn't going to make her stay or put it off at all. Am I being rude, or does anyone have any advice to handling this without breaking down in tears when I help?
