Not a girl, not yet a woman

Today, I got a very accusatory phone call from my daughter's teacher. According to my daughter, I absolutely refuse to let her eat in the morning. In reality, I told her it’s her responsibility to get herself up and get breakfast on her own before we leave. My daughter is 17 years old. FML

If she can't get herself up in time to eat breakfast then she doesn't want it enough. My nephews have been making their own meals since they were in Elementary school and still do. They make their own lunches the night before and bring them with them to school. They make their own breakfast in the mornings too and if they don't feel like waiting for their mom to get home, they make their own dinners too (as they know how to) The oldest one just hot into high school, but they have been doing it for ages. So a 17 year old I'm sure can handle breakfast. Even if it's just a bowl of cereal, I'm sure she's capable. If she wants to sleep in longer, she'll have to sacrifice whatever she is willing to sacrifice. But she's too old to be coddled.

Mama, you need to feed your babies! Children can't be expected to take care of themselves until they reach full adulthood, which usually occurs in the mid-30s.

yeah maybe 50 years ago. I moved out when I was 25, not in my mid 30s yet but I'm doing pretty well

I think it's the opposite -- kids in the olden days could become self-sufficient sooner. There were lots of middle-class jobs for people with only high-school diplomas.

I willingly cooked meals for my whole family from the age of seven (with appropriate teaching and supervision of course) at 17 and almost an adult if she’s not making her own food it’s on her...

perfection.

You sound like of those people who don’t teach their kids life skills and then proceed to send them out into the world to piss everyone else off 😩
