Totally Selfish Teenager
by Denise Lance
I have just recently moved countries so as my daughter can go to a very good private school to do her A levels.
Her father and I are divorced(ten years)and all through her life she has been told by him that the monies I received from the divorce is really for her. I have given her everything expensive haircuts/colouring, designer bags, anything she wants from my wardrobe. I do everything, cooking, ironing, and am always there for her emotionally. I am now looking for a job in UK and need five minutes of her time to just help me with a few internet issues and there's just no way she will.
I'm very frustrated paying for simple things to do with the internet that would have taken her no time. I've moved countries left friends and family so she can have the best, I do everything for her and don't complain, I give her 100 pounds a month allowance. I feel so frustrated that my child is incapable of GIVING. I have been asking her for three months and she just can't do it. She never hardly buys me a little gift for Mothers Day, etc., and I just feel like I have raised a child that expects everything but can't give.
