My 16 year old daughter has had a horrible attitude towards me lately. Everything I say or do seems to be wrong. She decided last week that she wanted to go live with her father. At first she said that I was to hard on her and then told me that it wasn't as much to do with me and more to do with she just wanted to live with her dad.
She had spoke to her father about moving in with him a few weeks prior and he told her to talk to me about it which she didn't do because she said she didn't want to hurt me.
I am devastated. Her 14 year old sister is devastated. I don't know how to even begin to cope with this. I have had her with me nearly everyday for 16 years and now she's not here. I worry that her father will let her do as she pleases and not keep her safe like i would.
I am so heartbroken. I have never felt so helpless, guilty, or so much like a failure. How do I cope with this and how do I comfort my 14 year old daughter that is hurting just as much as I am?
