My 15 year old baby daughter left home to live with her older sister. I know that she is being physically taken care of and she is safe. I call it a "controlled running away". I am not sure how to deal with the hurt and loss that I encounter almost daily as I miss my daughter. It seems that she doesn't miss me. I contact her often via text and she rarely responds. How can a child that you have given 15 years of your life to just forget you? She is in rebellion and is quite selfish. I love her none the less and miss her.
Any other mothers out there encounter this situation?

What was her Dad doing? Was he antagonizing her was she rebelling and didn't like the rules?

She did not get along with her dad. It is complicated but best to say that separation of the two was needed to allow for the possibility of healing. Being that she was the last born, she was like an only child for me. I was able to give more time, energy and resources in raising her.

So what happened in the lead up to her running away?
What have you been fighting about?
She hasn't just left because everything was fine at your house.
