My daughter is 15, next week. She is adopted from Taiwan, we got her at age 1. She has some attachment issues but never fully diagnosed. Her adopted dad and I divorced 2 years ago bc he was a mentally abusive narcissist. I am recently remarried to a man that has no children. I am frustrated with my daughter bc she refuses to talk with me, share or let me into her life. I have done everything I can from, divorce her dad to get her away from him, take her to counseling, love her, respect her, give her all I can. I don't know what else to do.
She has an unhealthy bond to her dad and does not see his lies or controlling behaviors.
I keep thinking this is a teenage phase but it has been going on since I got her.
