My daughter Is sixteen and very strong willed. She is a good kid not the drinking or smoking just strong willed. Her and her father are of similar natures and always at each other. So much so she says she hates him. I think he is disapointed in her as she couldn't manage in a regular school so home schools and does well. He also accuses her of things and does not seem to trust her like I do. I am stuck in the middle as he says I must stand behind him, but I think he handles conflect wrong and how can I turn my back on her and make her feel hurt even more. This might break our family, that's how serious it is. She has also has found it hard to settle down here in south africa after growing up in Ireland. He says that is just a excuse but I know how she feels.That's also why she found the school system so difficult to settle in to.
