How can i get along with my daughter

Sherlyn - posted on 10/31/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am a mom of 2 girls ones 12 yrs old and the other ones 5 yrs old. my mother just passed away a year ago and she was my best friend. When it came to my oldest daughter my mom would take over cause she would do and say things that would hurt my heart she doesnt listen if i told her not to do something i would turn around and she had done it already. Ive tried all types of dicipline but it doesnt seem to work, i feel like im starting to recent my daughter and it scares me. I dont have my mother here to help me and it kills me and my 12 yr old reminds me of that every time she does something wrong. I know that my mom and my daughter were very close, she would do everything with her nana and my mother had alot more patience. Im at a point where i just dont know what to do. I do want a good relationship with my daughter but it seems like it isnt going to happen because of the recentment. she looking for something in me but im looking for something in her and its just not happening.

Sherlyn, so sorry about the loss of your mother. How sad and terrible for the both of you.

It sounds like your daughter is taking your mothers death VERY hard. Is there someone she can talk to? Have you tried to sit down and speak with her about it?

I would recommend designating a mother daughter day with you both at least once a week.. Just the 2 of you doing special things together. It could be a movie, pedicure, going on a hike and having a picknick. So many different options. She is looking for a connection with you as much as you are with her. Good luck.
