Should I give up on my role as a parent ?

I've been away from my daughter for some time now. Seems as if others want me to fail as her mother. Should I listen to them ? In my opinion I don't think I should give up!

Does she want you in her life? At 15 it is more about her than it is about you and if you have not been around for a long time it is likely that she will be resistant. If she WANTS you around... by all means stick around. If she doesn't... tread carefully. Let her know that you love her and want to be a part of your life, but do not push yourself on her.

My daughter is 15. I have been away because I moved away. But am moving back where she is. She is staying with my brother and sister in law. Others just are mad because I left. But I have realized need to be in her life!

Why are you away from your daughter? How old is she? Why do other people thing you should not be parenting?
