Hi, I’m so glad you’re here.
I know you’ve tried so many different ways to reach your daughter. You’ve tried talking to her, having a heart-to-heart, giving her space, being her friend, disciplining her. But you just can’t seem to get through to her. She’s unhappy, depressed, and anxious – you barely recognize the girl who used to be so vibrant and confident.
And you’re consumed with worry and guilt: what if she makes a horrible mistake that ruins her life? How will she ever succeed and be happy when she is always so down on herself? What does her future hold if she continues this way? You wonder, “Where did I go wrong in raising her?”
It’s not your fault.
If you’re feeling this way, I want you to know that I understand. Raising a teen girl is tough, and there’s no easy cheat sheet to show you the “right” way to do it. But there are things you can do to help your daughter – and it’s not as difficult as you think.
You see, I know exactly what your daughter is going through. I was once that troubled teen girl, consumed with self-doubt and insecurity.
