Hey there @Falling2pieces, your last line - be there at a distance. As frustrating as it is, sounds like the best approach. Loving her with boundaries. Perhaps the main thing from here is to get yourself some support from a professional throughout this whole process? This online community I hope will prove very positive for you in this respect as well

Hey there @Help_needed, I am definitely hearing you possess a lot of love for your kids, this is so beautiful. I am sorry about the stress and anxiety you are feeling. Your young one must feel very agitated with the bullying at school. Are you concerned about moving her again and disrupting her learning? If you're keen on starting a thread to gain some support from our community, please feel free to do so here . We are here to listen, hope to hear from you soon.

Hi, I have a beautiful 15 year old daughter and I can't quite remember the last time she made me laugh but she often makes me smile. I manage stress by keeping things in context and trying not to take life too seriously. I joined ReachOut as I don't always feel effective in supporting my daughter when she becomes unhappy. My tip is to embrace the teenage years, there's so much transitioning for the whole family. When you're a shift worker, weekends are irrelevant. Any time spent with my daughter is precious and I'm also happy when she's with friends and traveling down the path of independence.

Welcome to the forum @Thin-L1zzy_, it's so great to have you part of the community.
I really like all you've written, and your tip is so very true but I think not always understood. As our teens are growing, we as parents need to as well, so peace in the family relies on everyone compromising and changing.
It sounds like you're a proud, loving mum and I look forward to seeing you in the forum
