My daughter has problems with anger. For example, this morning I was busy pumping up the tyres of her car (that I bought for her and still pay the insurance) and making sure the oil was topped up so she wouldn't have any problems on a long journey she's doing this morning. She started to shout at me because I'd been in to her room nearly a week ago to retrieve my gym bag that I lent her three weeks ago and that I needed to take to a class I was teaching. She shouted at me while I was making, then eating my breakfast, then followed me upstairs still shouting and swearing at me. In these situations, she keeps saying that I (or whoever it is she is angry with at the time) need to let her finish what she's saying but she will not let anyone else have their say.
I apologised for going in her room but asked if, in future, she could give things back that she has borrowed. This started her off again and she demanded another apology for going into her room which I initially refused to do but later in the argument I did apologise again. When she demanded a third apology I said I'd already apologised twice and she said it didn't count as I clearly hadn't meant it!
This went on and on until I got fed up with her hurtful accusations and left the house early in order to go to the doctor's. She phoned me 8 times while I was on my way there and when I answered the phone once I'd arrived she shouted at me over the phone for not picking up, accused me of making her late and demanded to know why I'd taken the sat nav holder with me (which I hadn't - her father has it in his car).
I then saw that she'd put stuff about this on Facebook, swearing about me and saying that I was deliberately sabotaging her long drive!
In the past I've sent her to child therapists but she hasn't implemented any of the things they've told her to do.
I'm crying as I type this as I'm at the end of my tether and don't know what else I can do.
