Our daughter,22,and her 28 year old boyfriend were living us while they 'saved' and one evening last week (after he 'accidently' nearly broke her nose)he became rude and abusive to both my husband and I.We asked him to leave and he became abusive again at whch point we called the police.Our daughter felt we were over reacting and went with him. They returned to the house three days later,to collect the rest of their belongings,when we turned up our daughter became rude and he was intimidating to the point where we had to call the police again. Did we do the right thing?

Thank you so much. I know she is a consenting adult but she was NEVER brought up with violence or abuse.I find it hard to think of how she has changed since she has been with him. I only hope she comes to her senses.
Hi, its often the case that when someone thinks they love another person, then they follow them and believe in every action. Deep down, your daughter is still the same wee girl you knew but with a blinkered view due to a negative influence.
My husband and I have both tried to take a step back and we do feel we had no choice other than to do what we did. I understand how calling the police has damaged our relationship with her but her boyfriend was out of control - he would not listen.
then you certainly made the right decision... the only concerning factor would be your daughter and the tainted relationship you have with her... i hope things work out between you guys.
