My husband and our daughter haven't ever really been close. Not like her and I have. But lately, she acts like she hates him. Everytime they talk it turns into a fight. He isn't very good at talking to her, he is judgemental, condescending, and I always find myself defending her. At the same time, she is disrespectful and talks back to him and me. When he goes out of town for business, she wants him to stay gone. Now, I lost my dad when I was 5 and had to live without a dad. How do I make her see how lucky she is that she has a daddy that cares about her and wants her to be a good person? Yes, he gets fed up with her laziness and gets mad. I think it's just hormones making her act this way. It's just a little upseting when she tells me that when she turns 18 she will leave and never talk to her dad again. What should I say to her?

I would sit down and talk with her and find out where this animosity comes from feelings like that develop for a reason. If you don't think she will talk to you have her see a counselor maybe they can help bridge the gap.
