my daughter and I are too close of friends and if I pull away she feels unloved what do I do?
by Casey Smith
I have been a single mom since my daughter was 2yrs. My daughter 13yrs old and I have developed a friendship and at times she tells me too much of her personal issues.
I think its ok to a degree but she needs to talk to her friends her age about these things also. When I tell her this she feels I am pushing her away or rejecting her. I just feel that some of the subject should be peer related and she would know she is not the only one with issues.
She wants to be perfect or have no issues in her life. I get to emotionally drawn into the issues and it effects me.
I do not know how to bring space in our relationship without her feeling rejected. She has self esteem issues as it.
