She's old enough to make her own mistakes, which is a big part of growing up. Sounds to me like she's at least asking some of the right questions. My advice is, keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn't hurt herself in some big way, but don't try to micro-manage her. If anything, trying to tell her what to do at this age will only provoke a backlash. You are experiencing the parental dilemma: letting go but wanting to help as much as possible. Good luck.(Original post by Anonymous)
She is studying but keeps ranting about how she doesn't want to be another drone with a depressing 9-5 job. From the sound of it, she wouldn't mind dropping out and becoming some sort of hippy. But if she drops out of uni, it will be at my mum's expense. She's reckless and impulsive, that's why I worry about her being around drugs. "In moderation" isn't in her vocabulary, she's all about living in the moment.
