My daughter is away at college in her senior year. She will come home on occasion but is typically at school or stays at her boyfriends house. I get upset with her because she has gained weight and doesn't take much pride in her appearance. I think when she was home I was more on top of this stuff. Not sure if the problem is me and I have to accept this or should I say something which can be a very sensitive matter. she is an only child and I'm used to taking care of her. I still try by offering gift certs to get a manicure/pedicure, hair done, etc. Tell her about my exercise classes and the diet program that I'm so it may encourage her. I hate and am at times very ashamed of her appearance. feel it is a reflection on me. I'm not trying to raise a beauty queen or be unreasonable but want her and expect her to take more pride in her appearance.
Any input/suggestions would be appreciated. thank you.
