Eish. One can be intellectual, even intelligent, without being wise. Its overall usualyl a good policy with a kid of 18, to respect their decisions --- if they are actually applying their mind to making those decisions thoutfully, rather than acting impulsive and over-emotionally. Sounds like you may, though, have been painting yourself into a corner, with some similarly emotional and not fully thought-through decisions. A "never darken my door step again" approach to daughter, parents, and brother isolates you, but doesn't surely solve any of the problems ? Wouldn't it be better to try to negotiate a peace conference, with all interested parties, maybe even with a counsellor to help referee, to work out the best solution for everyone involved ?
