my 8yr old dd and i have NEVER had a great relationship. from day 1, she prefered her dad to me. at the time i was also going through really bad post partum depression, un-diagnosed bi-polar, and nine monthe after she was born, i was pregnante again! needless to say, we didn't bond very much
well, now she's eight, going on nine, and really needing that mother-daughter relationship, but everything i try gets her mad at me. i don't know what to do, and i'm at my wits end! can anyone offer suggestions? she loves make-overs, but when i do it, "that's not how daddy does it!", or brushing her hair, she always yells at me for hurting her, she loves reading, but when i try to give her a book, "it's too hard for me!" even if it's Dr. Suess! i just don't know what to do any more!
