She's shutting me out and we use to be so close she's having a hard time dealing with the murder of her teacher and guidance teacher she doesn't want to sleep, eat or talk. Please help! What can I do?

Pre-Teen Shutdown
by: Sara


Wow! Your baby has a lot to process. Pre-teen time is a normal time of withdrawl. However; your daughter has some serious trauma to deal with.

In your case, I would advise you to seek some professional help. This situation is quite complicated. Stay close to your daughter, assure her she is safe, and that you aren't going to leave her.

Much love to both of you!
