My daughter and I have had our problems, her daddy died when she was 19 months old and I was not the most patient/loving mama. I have been working on spending time with her, doing activities together, trying to bond. Things have gotten better, but there is a disconnect still. I guess my main concern is that she is argumentative and hardly ever believes anything I tell her e.g. homework help, what someone says. And she seems to be embarrassed if she gets something wrong, she has always had an issue with fessing up. I encourage her that it's okay and telling the truth is the best choice. I feel like I'm living with a teenager!
I love my daughter so much, I just don't know how to get our relationship on the best track.
