I don't love my daughter as much as I should

She was my first born and six years later I'm still very disconnected. But I wasn't when she was younger.

She was kidnapped for a year by a family member and I think it affected my ability to be attacked to her. :/ How can I improve this issue?

Great advice.... People survived before therapy, so any other suggestions?

My sister had a similar issue. She started taking a voluntary parenting class, and her relationship with her daughter is now amazing. Also, therapy like PP said.

Well, that was unnecessarily rude of you.

 Attachment therapy.

How old is she? Do you feel she pushes you away? Or is it your guilt that you missed a year of her life?

That was really rude! It was good advice because that is exactly what you need. Geez!

I kind of went through something similar. My ex was very controlling and abusive and it kept me from bonding with our daughter, then when I got the courage to leave him he kept our daughter from me and continued to control my life. We have 50/50 custody now and every day I have anxiety attacks because he STILL treats me like shit and tries to control me and treats me like I'm a worthless piece of shit. I feel like by him getting half custody, the judge rewarded him for treating me like shit and threatening to take my daughter away from me for good for ridiculous reasons. Hope you figure out how to bond with her properly. It's really important. I wish you the best of luck.

I've taken the parenting classes already at the advice of the case worker. I'm a great parent, involved attentive, caring. I just feel like she's a random child to a degree. Idk...
