Customer Question

I am having difficulity with my 14 year old daughter. She is unwilling to have difficult conversations with me. When she disagrees with something, then she just screams and says that she is unwilling to talk about it. The 3 current topics: too much time on the internet, focusing and doing school work, and eating issues (she has a eating disorder and is unwilling to work on helping herself even after 3 years of counseling).
My goal is to have a healthy conversation with her about the topics, but she won't even let me address them. As you know, a conversation has to go both ways and without her willingness, it just turns into frustration and anger. Thoughts?
