Moms to Kids over twenty one

I have a question for you moms that have kids that are 21 and over and still live at home.  It seems to me that dd is causing more aggravation now then when she did when she was in high school and college.  I give her kudos for graduating school and have a full time job but there seems to be something off.  There was an instance this morning with one of her younger sisters  and she went off on them for something that was her responsibilty. She has known about this for a couple of months and waited to the last minute.  Needless to say she played the blame game.  Which of course was bounced back in her face. So what I am wondering is anyone or has anyone been thru this and what did you do to stay sane!!

 It's good that she has a full time job. But, if they're just arguing, I'd ignore it. Simply put, pick your battles!

 Yup, Pick your battles. And if it continues to be a problem, help her find an apartment.

 How old is she?  She may be needing to have her own "home".

One of the perks of having an only  child LOL...no sibling arguing.

There will always be sibling drama. The best thing is to set a good example yourself and not get involved in the petty drama. :-)

I'd have a talk with her and remind her she is an adult and should act like one. If she can't do her part and be responsible, thinks she is above helping or whatever the problem is, she can find her own place and figure it all out on her own. Sounds like she needs a reality check.

I'm not saying argue or fight battles for others, we never allowed battles with our kids. They get along and that is that.

I told my sons early on that they had to handle their own arguments. Sometimes siblings squabble, I have a theory that it is part of what the species does. It does sound as though the older daughter may need her own place.
