Divorced for 10 years. Two daughters have always lived with me. Youngest one 20 has been showing a negative attitude towards me for about 2 yrs. Was sweet thing but gradually started to show signs of anger towards me. I was a stay at home mom with her, from room mother to volunteering thru H.S. Cheerleading Tournaments. Always there when she needed me. Great student & kid. Very flexible-friends always welcome, boyfriends, etc. But gradually anger sparked, no talking, ignoring me, calling me annoying, even fighting with sister. A month ago, I couldn't take it anymore & told her that either she figured out what the problem was or she had to leave. She packed it up and moved in with her dad who she rarely cared to hang out with (not because of him; he is a very good father). He's remarried and has two small children. Continues to ignore me, rarely calls. I'm very angry & confused. Any ideas as to why this behavior?Answer Question
I hate to be insensitive, but could it be drugs? I know that is a major cause of sudden attitude change

Give her space and let her figure it out. You can't fix her problem.
Don't worry she'll come to you. Life is the way it is and can't go back. Soon she'll figure that out herself as she has her own relationships.
You done very well in being their during her school years.
