I hate my daughter's boyfriend – how can I get her to dump him? | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MY daughter’s boyfriend is a total nuisance and is really affecting her mental health.

How can I get her to see sense and dump him?

She’s 24, and I’m her 56-year-old mother.

I was thrilled when she told me she’d met someone as she’s had such awful luck with men in the past.

But six months on, I wish he’d never come into her life.

He’s broken up with her twice after snogging other women on nights out. Then he comes crawling back asking for another chance.

He’s also always cancelling plans so he can go out with his mates.

It’s been such a rollercoaster, I’ve been struggling to keep up.

How do I tell her that she deserves so much better?

DEIDRE SAYS: You are right to be concerned about the way your daughter’s boyfriend is treating her.

It’s disrespectful, and can’t be doing any good for her self-esteem.

But it may be that you will have to step back and let her learn from it.

After all, she is an adult, and forcing your opinion on her may only push her further into his arms.

Just keep reminding her that you are there if and when she needs you.
