Dear Coleen

Daily Record - - THURSDAY WOMAN -

I’VE found out that my daugh­ter is work­ing as a pros­ti­tute. She’s a univer­sity stu­dent and says it helps her get by.

I found out by ac­ci­dent after a friend saw her at a ho­tel with a much older man.

When I asked her about it, she even­tu­ally ad­mit­ted he was a client and that for more than a year, she’s been go­ing for meals and to func­tions and the­atre dates with men.

They pay for the whole evening and then she sleeps with them for money.

I’m ap­palled and dis­gusted with her. This is not how I brought her up.

She brushed all this off when I con­fronted her and in­sisted she’s per­fectly safe and that she doesn’t have time with her de­gree to get a job in a shop or pub.

This way she can make hun­dreds of pounds, she says, do­ing things she en­joys – like eat­ing and hav­ing sex.

She also said that I “don’t live in the real world” if I think her loan is enough to live on.

How can I get through to her? Ev­ery gift she buys for birthdays or for her baby nieces and neph­ews I see as dirty money now.

I’m so ashamed I could cry.
