doulajen Posted April 1, 2007 Share Posted April 1, 2007 I am the mother of three beautiful children. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous marriage and two boys, 4 and 2 with my new husband. My problem is with my husband and my daughter. In the beginning when she was 10 they got along great, but since she was about 12 they do not EVER get along. My daughter is quiet and does not fight verbally....it is all attitude and little comments. My husband says that she needs to meet him halfway if they are going to work out their problems and of course she refuses to meet a quarter of the way. This is the only topic that my husband and I fight about! He is always defensive when we talk about her and puts the blame on her. She does virtually the same thing. They complain about the other to me and I am always stuck in the middle feeling lost and helpless. I am now at the point where I try to avoid the topic all together and I feel like I have two separate families. I miss my little girl who now spends very little time at home with us and we used to be as close as a mother and daughter can be. Her grades have also dropped and I am worried about the company she is keeping. Any advice would be greatly appreciated because I have no idea what to do. I have talked and talked and talked and nothing ever gets better and councelling is not an option for either of them....they both flat out refuse! PLEASE HELP!
