So we took our Daughters Friend In Back in September. We treat her as our own and she seems to be very ungrateful... What to do??

As someone who was taken in by a friends family. Thank you. As of today I am a financially independent person and am only here thanks to the kindness of my friends family. They are/were losers if you will yet they took me in. Had it not been for them I wouldn't be here

We don't treat her any different then we do our own kids and she definitely has it way better then she ever has just don't seem to appreciate anything we do for her and starting to seem like she expects it now

How old is she? under or over 18? why did you take her in? If she is going to be ungrateful, first talk to her about how you are feeling & if it does not get better kick her ass out. what is she doing to be ungrateful?

My Grandson is kind of the same way, feels entitled to stuff that my own kids never got. I suggest that you tell her how you're feeling, that you don't want resentment to build. And it's so true that sometimes we're not thankful for things until much later, hopefully she will thank you some years from now!
