My 20-yo dd and I are room-mates now, which is a tough transition. But she takes advantage of me financially if I don't call her on it. I'm in a position where I cannot rent in my own name due to an eviction from last year. Part of the reason I got evicted was due to irresponsibility on my dd's part in not doing what was needed at the Welfare office, causing me to lose my FS and medical bene's, then moving back in with me and not paying me any rent, when she knew I was getting evicted. She's getting petty now about money that I've given her to fund a trip for her birthday next spring when she turns 21. She canceled the trip, received a refund for the hotel we'd prepaid, and plans to spend the money on HER xmas w/o giving me back the $ I'd put into the account. I don't want to get into a pissing contest over $ around the holidays, but I really need the money myself and can't just "let it go" this time; it's $500!

You gave the money to her for a trip. Now that she has cancelled the trip, she should be a grown up and give you your money back.
