Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX considered depression but there are no signs. But do you think thats the reason for her not following any advice from me.
Uni is much harder than A levels and her living away is hard for her too.
She is quite cheerful and always seems positive but simply doesnt seem to respect my solution to her problems.
Its as though she feels she knows better all the time even though her methods and approach have failed. How can I get her to try my approach which is proven to work.?
Your daughter has many issues going on in her life: emotional, physiological, as well as psychological. That is a lot to deal with at one time. Then to top it off, she has to deal with your much warranted suggestions to help her improve her life. It seems as though she is completely overwhelmed with all of the events in her life. It also seems as though nothing more that you can say will help her improve. She hears what you have to say, but she is nor actively processing it. I think that you have come to a crossroads in which you need to seek professional help yourself first on coping strategies in dealing with your daughter. A trained psychologist or counselor can assist you in such strategies. You would need to meet with such an individual one or two times a month or more. They can provide you with intervention strategies to help you deal with daughter. Also, they might suggest seeing your daughter if she is willing. Oftentimes, a neutral party like a psychologist or a counselor is the best route to take. They allow you to completely open up to them and share your feelings and concerns without being judgmental. Their advice is always so helpful . If you would like to take that route, contact the customer service representative of your health insurance and they can steer you in the right direction. All in all, I think your daughter needs to hear solutions to her problems from a different perspective. Your options now are somewhat limited.
If this has at all helped, please ACCEPT. Have a great evening!!!
