college age daughter
MOST HELPFUL POSTS

How long has she been distant and difficult? Could it be just because it's getting towards finals and she's busy? If you don't think that is it can you maybe get in touch with her roommate? If she lives in the dorm you can definitely ask the RA to check on her or perhaps, better yet the RD for her dorm. It could just be "typical" college girl becoming independent but in this day and age you never know....and better safe than sorry.

Do you think it might be helpful to go spend the weekend with her? Sometimes we have to be present to know what is going on. What exactly is she being difficult about? Is she questioning your instruction or reluctant to do what you say? Or is she just busy and living her own college life? You know your daughter better than anyone. If I had concerns, I would probably go see her.

If you don't use FB, you don't, although it wouldn't take a whole lot out of your day to acknowledge her accomplishments that she posts.
If she's attention fishing, she's not distant, I must point out.
Instead of "making an effort to acknowledge her adulthood"...how about accept that she is an adult, and stop treating her like a teenager. You can still be firm if she gets whiny...

What has she done to become distant and difficult? Is it because she isn't telling you every little thing happening every day?
She is living away from you, she is living her own life and is going to school. She's not going to ring you everyday.
