I don't know if she thinks this is cute or if she is genuinely repulsed by it. I thought we all had a good relationship. She lives with me (her mother of course), my husband (her step father of 10 years), and her brother who is 8. It came out of the blue. DH looked for the memory card and batteries for her camera. When he found it he put everything in the camera, put his arm around her shoulder and tried to take a test picture. She jerked away and screeched "EWWWW! Don't touch me!!!". She was serious. This reduced my husband to tears. I've seen him cry about five times in our 10 yr. marriage. Today after she had been at her Dad's for two days I put my arm around her, kissed her on the cheek, and said "I really missed you." She shivered and pulled away. We were in my car in private.
This really hurts our feelings. I think it's disrespectful for her to behave this way. Thoughts?
