My daughter dislikes school so will sometimes fake being sick so she can stay home. Well she has "cried wolf" so many times now that I tend not believe her when she says she doesn't feel good. Just about every morning she says this before school. Well this morning she again said she doesn't feel good and I wouldn't let her stay home. Now she has told me that she doesn't ever want me to ask her how she is and she is never going to confide in me about anything because she thinks I don't care about her. We've even taken her to the doctor on several occasions because she doesn't feel good and even the doctor thinks she is basically being a drama queen. My question is this - how do I now fix my relationship with my daughter? Is this normal and should I just let it blow over on it's own? I don't like having her mad at me but I also think she's pushing my buttons.
