Looking for some help with my wife and daughter's current situation.
My 20 yr old step daughter who just returned Tuesday from a month long trip to Alaska which we paid for to stay with her boyfriend and his family wanted to drive to Pittsburgh for her boyfriends cousins wedding today. Her boyfriend and his parents are not attending as they are in Alaska.
My stepdaughter plays NCAA soccer on scholarship but otherwise lives with us and has no income. She drives a jeep i finance in my name and has every thing a nice middle class family can afford her. She's a good young lady.
My wife did not want her go away again 4 days after returning from being away a month and so close to the date of going back out of state for college. So they argued about it yet my stepdaughter drove there anyway Friday while we were at work.
My wife disconnected her iPhone and is close to reporting she took the car without permission to the police. I don't think she'll do that. But she's mad so I don't know.
I can't get through to either of these stubborn women to figure this out win-win. I fear what might happen next.
Is there anything I can do or say short term to help them get through this?
