Last year my teenage daughter had a Job and set forth her goals on how she was going to be paying for her car that we helped her buy. She barrowed 5000 from her dad and 2500 from me for the car and was working to pay us back. I was not demading payments from her while she was paying her dad back first. I just asked if she would help me when needed.
That lasted 6 months and then she stated slacking off and then Summer came and she had plans of getting a better Job and pay off everyone, if she got to go stay with her older brother and his wife in the big city. Well she got a job but no more then 10 hours a week. She didnt make any payments on her car drained her checking account to the negative of $450 and rang up her cell phone bill to 400.00 Amounts that I cant afford but covered.
And as of last night I took away the cell phone and suspended her debit card and took the keys of the car and I feel that she will not get them back till I see the payments for all that she has costed me this summer. She is now 18 years of age and feels that I owe her. And all the while is calling me F****** B**** and a WH*** and doing the same to her younger sister that got a parttime job this summer and earned enough money to buy her own horses and saddle and tack as well has provied money to buy hay for the winter.
What should I BE REQUIRING FROM MY DAUGHTER BEFORE RETURNING HER KEYS AND PHONE?
