Should I quit my job to stabilize my daughter?
I am currently working at a contract job. My 15 year old daughter just came to live with me. We were both living with my parents. She lived with her Dad from age 10 to 15. She is routintely throwing tantrums in the morning and blaming me for her "failings" in school, etc. I then come to work late and can not concentrate or really produce at work. I work as an Accountant. I am thinking of quitting for some time and then taking up a job again after she gets through the transition. My parents want my daughter to stay with them for some time and I do not want that. That is not the solution. I have to explain that to them. They just make things worse and in fact pushed me to move out and now say that they did not.

you can request a leave from your job and when things get back on track at home, you can have your job back. If you employer dosnt do that then quiting for the sake of your child is best.,

somewhere along the line your daughter is really going to have to come to grips with this situation. Pretty much sounds like she is pulling every string she can to make you adhere to HER ways. As for the failing grades- she MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for her actions and NOT shift the blame to you. YOU MUST set some... More

Stop taking advice from your parents because you are acting like you are they're 5 year old daughter that needs her to kiss your boo-boo. I think you should get another job that benefits you both. You get better hours that are flexible for you and your daughter.
