I am having troubles with my account, lighthouse369. I posted to you earlier but my post disappeared. I will write you a longer post tomorrow (it's middle of the night in my part of the world) but, for now, I wanted you to know that you've been heard. Thank you for trusting your concerns and fears with this community.

Hello @lighthouse369, that sounds like a very challenging situation for your family. It must be so hard to hear these hurtful things from your daughter. Has the psychologist provided any advice around this defiance? Is there a safety plan and action plan surrounding suicide and self-harm for your daughter? It definitely hard to tackle this on your own. Are there any activities you engage on your own or with your family to engage in self-care? It is important to look after yourself as a parent as you are continuously providing support to your family!
Have sent you an email @compassion, regarding the technical difficulties

That sounds very familiar, unfortunately!
My son also expresses anger when setting boundaries (I have the same issue with screen time). I give him 10 minute warning (which I do in a very "friendly" voice) but when it comes to handing over the device he says "just wait a minute" and if I try and reach for it he can get physical.
I haven't figured out a good way around the problem with boundaries. My son has ODD so it pretty much happens every time I ask him to do something. Looking forward to receiving that magic wand that you are supposed to get when you become a parent. It must be stuck in the mail!
Best of luck!
