There are two things in particular that I love about your post @sunflowermom...
"listening and not try to solve or give advice so quickly",
"lots of patience, less pushing and more letting go."
Such fantastic tips, thank you for sharing.

It's really tough when we can feel our loved ones pushing us away, good on you for continuing to try and reach out to your daughter I'm sure she appreciates knowing how much you care about her
How did she feel about the idea of getting support from Place2B? Sometimes it can be worth revisiting support ideas again later on and letting children know even if they don't want to access a service right now, they can have a think about it and maybe give it a try at a later date.
The accident her brother was involved in must have been really hard for the whole family, were you able to get some support around what happened?
Sometimes as well it can be good to see if there is someone else she might want to open up to about how she is feeling? Sometimes it is hardest to be most open with people we're closest too, is there someone else in her life that might be able to talk to her about what is going on for her?

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
