Teenage Daughter Hates Family

Daniela - posted on 07/15/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hey ladies! My household consists of my daughters, 18 and 16, and sons, 14 and 8, and then my husband and I. My 16 year old takes after my husband; however, they don't get along. They haven't for the last 5 years. I thought it was just a phase, but things went from bad to worse in the last couple months. She was diagnosed with depression and because of events tensions in the house has raised to an all time high. At the peak of the tension my husband and I tried to talk to her, but it seemed like everything we said was wrong and that "we didn't understand what she has been through." At that time she told me that as soon as she can get out of the house she would leave. She said she wanted to just go away and not tell us where she is going so she can start over. Her trying to be independent breaks my heart and only aggravates my husband more. Any advice?
