My daughter's first breakup

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

My daughter is going through her first breakup and the problem is that she is fine with the whole thing but I am devastated. I feel as if I'm the one that is going through a breakup. I cannot understand what in the world is wrong with me. My daughter has a really good head on her shoulder and she thinks the boy is a little crazy for how he treated her so she is fine with the breakup and I just can't understand why I'm reacting the way that I am.

We never want to see our kids hurt, and it's normal to be a little angry or upset over a boy who emotionally hurt your little girl (no matter how old she is, she's still your little girl). But to feel so much more affected than even your daughter is not normal. Maybe you need to look at what's happened to you in your life for what might be causing this reaction with your daughter. Maybe something happened to you that you never really got over, and it's coming back in this way. If it's not that, then I don't know. But you need to let it go.
