Today, my child told me when she makes enough money to support herself, she's never going to speak to me again. FML

What the hell did you do to her? Kids aren’t stupid, and they aren’t sub-human. Believe it or not, parents aren’t perfect, and they make stupid and real shitty mistakes all the time despite trying to do the best they can. Maybe try and evaluate how you speak to her, approach her about certain things, etc. and you might find that it can come off as really insulting. Children may not be fully developed, but it doesn’t mean they are stupid, and they know when they are being spoken down to or when their parents purposefully avoid them

Your child is probably trying to emotionally manipulate you, many children do that, and I wouldn't be worried unless they are over 18 and have had a long-running spat with you.

You are clearly not a parent.

You have no experience with parenting dontcha

Yes exactly. If they are over 18, they could well mean it and you probably deserve it. Either because you're mean in some way, or because you have raised a child to be mean. Or maybe even both. If they're younger, you have time to make sure that this type of behaviour doesn't become a pattern, use the time well!

Kids say this to their parents all the time, no matter their age. Don't think too much of it.

Why wait? Kick her out of the house and disown her immediately. Start the no-talking thing now!

Damn. Someone screwed up...

At Least they want to get a job and earn money rather than get knocked up and spend their life on welfare mooching off taxpayers.

This was my thought. I've seen enough shitty kids and enough shitty parents that it's a total 50/50 on if OP deserves it or not.

Dragon maiden why on earth are you blaming the Mom that’s part of the problem now a days kids think they can do and say whatever... she’s being a parent so what if the kid doesn’t like something

nobody's perfect and that includes parents. Parents are the ones most responsible for how their kids turn out, so chances are the kid had very good reason to say that. If the kid is still young, then OP has time to correct their own attitude and that of their kid.

There's a big difference between being a tough parent and a crappy human being.

Not enough info. Kid might be young and not understand. Kid might be a teenage brat. You might be an asshole. We don't have enough info to say which is true.

That kid will go places. You'll see.
