My daughter has recovered very well lately. Sore ribs from the airbag deployment, and a fear of driving again. That will take some coaching, which I am eager to help with.
It's been an interesting event, especially my approach verses my now ex, concerning my daughters rights to have transportation to college and a soon future job. Especially when her 4 older brothers where given the same opportunities. ( ie: transportation provided for them, while they worked and saved for their own car when they became 18 yrs. old)
Once again.... My ex is showing her manipulative control, because money is involved. Money =power= control.
The divorce gives me an opportunity to now do things my way, my rules, with my money. My ex tells my daughter, " you wrecked it, you don't get another one." ( I cringe! RRRGGHH knowing her income and the 2 to 300,000 dollars that she hid and kept. We are talking about spending 2 to 5 thousand for a loaner car. One my other daughter will also use a year from now)
It was an accident. That's what it's called an accident. Where it occurs is one dangerous tricky, very poorly laid out intersection. A part of town that we never travel in.
My own car was recently totaled from a hail storm. my insurance will give me an excessive amount to replace it, or I keep it (it runs excellent mostly all superficial cosmetic dents) and have enough left over to get a car for my daughter, and work out paying for the insurance. All without any interference from the ex. Maybe I need to post this under raising children?
One of my sons is ready to sell his first car and upgrade to a newer one. His old car would be a good loaner car for my remaining 2 daughters.
