My daughter is nearly 21 and still lives at home. She has just finished an undergraduate degree and working. We have always been close but now she comes home says hi and stays in her room and hardly talks to her brother and I. She broke up with her boyfriend last november and people told her they never liked him and I told her how I felt. Now she is back with him and we no longer talk, They used to fight for hours and I know she is trying really hard not to have those fights with him so I wonder if that might build up in her and she takes it out on me because she knows I will always love her no matter what she does.
She says that is not the reason but before the breakup she would always come and talk even at 3am when she got home.
She is a smart, intelligent young woman and this is tearing me apart.
At the moment we are giving each other space so there is less chance of arguments . Is it wrong that while she is living at home she should have some rules?
