My daughter uses and abuses me – how do I tell her 'no'? | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MY daughter is about to turn 27 but she still acts like a teenager, avoiding all responsibility and running home whenever it suits her.

I’m her 65-year-old mum, and I’m sick of being walked all over.

For the last four years, she’s been dating this guy. He’s 31, and an awful influence on her.

The two of them spend their days smoking weed and living off benefits.

He drinks a lot and can be quite volatile, so every few months, she turns up on the doorstep with all her stuff, demanding I let her stay because they’re “on a break”.

This can’t go on.
