One of the hardest parts of parenting is knowing when to cut the umbilical cord with a young adult child. Ideally, parenting is a life-long relationship, where you can provide love and support across the years.
But there are points where a grown child needs to face the consequences of their choices on their own. However, it can feel tough to draw that line if they interpret that boundary as abandonment.
AITA for not letting my pregnant daughter move in with me?
My daughter is 23 (I'm Dad btw). A few years ago my wife (not her mom) took her to get a birth control implant, and she was always happy on it. Fast forward about a year and she meets a guy(he's 28) online and "falls in love."
