My 16 Yr old and I have always been close and have always shared everything. She has been dating a guy that she has lost herself in. I have been watching her little by little give up everything important to her only to be consummed by time spent with him. I worry constantly that this relationship is so very toxic for her and unlike before in her life I can no longer say anything about it without her shutting me down or out which in turn pulls them closer together.
