My father passed away when I was 12 years old. My Mother had a 15 year old,a 12 year old and a 9 year old. I remember her taking us shopping a lot. I guess it was her way of trying to make us happy. Your daughter needs your love, but she needs space as well. Talk with her about her feelings, but don't suffocate her. Hope that helps?

I lost my daughters father on 20/09/12 we have had many ups and downs especially me. My daughter has been a star but what I find upsetting is that it seems like she has been robbed of her childhood.

She turned 11 on the 17th of this month and she seems so grown up it scares me. She has started answering back and seems to be losing respect for adults.

She was very close to her dad he was her confidante and they had a bond which is very apparent as my daughter acts like her dad is also the spitting image of him.

I think you just have to take each day as it comes and do your best! It's all we can do. My lil warrior princess gives me strength and I learn from her, she does act out in other ways but I'm working on it.

She got very lazy and she doesn't care about her presentation or personal hygiene but I'm always on her case and I think it's a phase.

Stay strong and know that we can only do our best our children are going through many changes hormonal my and they're discovering who they are. Just take each day as it arrives like I said and ensure that you both communicate
