daughter and husband havent talked for months, should i get involved?
My daughter whos nearly 18 hasn't talked to her dad for about two months now.
It started when she got in an arguement with him about how he was being bossy towards her and me (her mother). She got angry about how he treated us, he oes have a bad temper at times. It started out about that one incedent but then she went on to say he had been abusive towards the both of us and it had seriously hurt her mental health. she said he made her depressed and untrusting of other people.
he had previously thought the two of them were close, he had always made an effort to stay close with her after he had lost his temper with her or me. She told him that she hated that attempt at closeness even more than his temper, whenever she had to spend time with him she was faking that she felt okay, and really she was uncomfortable or scared.
I had no idea this was going on until recently; all though my daughters childhood she never seemed affected by his temper, also I never saw her cry about anything. She looked very calm and happy, but she said she was very depressed.
Now that they are not talking my daughter tells me she feels much better but my husband hates it and wants to make things better. I told him to back off for a while because that seems to be what she wants, but I really don't know what to do. My daughter is going to a therapist but she never tells anything about what happens there.
What should I do? my husband will listen to anything that might make things better between the two of them, but my daughter seems like she does not want to talk
