I need help so bad!! Audrey is so angry last year we had to have her medically placed in a treatment center. The sad thing is, that she is not on drugs, and she still is so mad at her dad and I for loving her so much, I know that sounds silly, but she really wishes that her dad and I did not love her, she hates us for caring so much about her... this is the most heartbreaking thing to me her mom, she hates me because I lover her and this is killing me inside, My own child who was my first child and who was premature and needed me so much just so that she could be alive right now today at the age of 17 hates her dad and I for getting her here to this point in her life.... I have never felt so sad and never felt the pain that even though I did everything possible to save her and give her a good life, she now hates herself because I did this.... please someone help me to understand how to deal with this

Perhaps she feels overprotected, isolated, and singled out by your overly attentive treatment.

What does her counselor say?

Dear Bobbie Renee, I feel for you, although I have preteens, not teenagers I can assure you, you're not alone. I read material on how to deal adolescents and teens, and help teens who are going through so many changes, grow into adulthood. Remember this can be a temporary state in your child's life, not forever. Hang in there. I just read an article this week , I noticed your read mentioned you "pray", I get a lot of positive help as a parent from jw.org you can go on their site and scroll down to "parents" and there is also a section for "teenagers", lots of videos with interviews, very engaging, very honest. I hope this reply finds you well.

I just hope and pray that maybe someone can help me and maybe I will find this help here, but I feel so needy to find help, that I have come to a social media forum, to address the sad situation that I am currently and have been dealing with for well over a year now... I probably have made a mistake to seek advice here. and sorry for the bother...
