If anyone isn't being fair it would be her not being fair to her dad and I. We work our butts off to keep our home and property nice - she does very little to pitch in and help.
So my point is rather than sit back and call "foul" - figure out if they really are as bad as you think and whether you may be contributing to the problem as well.
Not a lecture - just a perspective.
I do get what you're coming from, but I appreciate what my parents do for me, I really do and try to help out as much as I can even though I don't have a job and they know that. I'm sure your daughter appreciates what you guys do for her as well.
My mom gives me rides to the shelter every day I don't have my license yet..
but I tell her thank you every day. I help around the house and help keep it clean and help out with the animals, too. I know you're not lecturing me.
and I am not saying they are bad at all. I love my parents and would never call them the bad guys and I don't blame them for everything that goes wrong. I am just having an emotional day and that's probably why I over reacted. I would never make my parents look bad, I just needed to vent and that's all. I didn't mean to imply they are bad parents because they are not. They give me everything and I love them for that and I try to make it clear that I appreciate everything they do for me even though sometimes I don't thank them but they know how much I appreciate them doing whatever they can for me to be happy. I hope I made sense here.
