Hi, our daughter is now 16 and is pretty much a text book difficult teenager. So very different to the girl we knew just a few years ago. It really feels like we have lost our daughter. Withdrawn is how I would describe her. We get very little if any conversation out of her. She is consumed with sitting on her phone with headphones on. It is now beyond her to say please, thank you or even happy birthday. It appears we have become her number one enemy. There is a huge amount of anger and resentment but we don’t know why and she refuses to talk to us about it. We do have a few boundaries which she obviously dislikes but generally she has much freedom and all the home comforts she reasonably needs. I’m sure those who have been through it get the picture. Common advice seems to be that we should get professional help which I am in the process of arranging. Any tips and advice would be appreciated. Also, if anyone has seen a therapist, was it helpful and what type of strategies were offered? Thanks in advance.
