Sometimes I wonder what I'm doing wrong........ will I always play the part of the horrible villain in her eyes now? Or is it normal to feel this way when you have a daughter who is stuck between a woman and a child? I use to be the one she wanted, the one she came to when she was hurt or sad, now I'm the one she turns away from and blames everything on, And yes at times hates on.

Have you ever wondered if there is more you could do to put them on the right path? I've showed her right from wrong, talked to her about drinking and drugs and yes the one most parents hate the "SEX TALK". I know I've made mistakes but I've tried the best i could and still somewhere along the why I became the villain.....the bad guy.....

she is my child, my baby, my life. No matter what i will always love her and be there for her. i was just wondering does anyone else ever feel......... lost in this teenage world?

I'm only 18, so the memory of teenage angst is still fresh in my mind. At that age all adults are the villian. They "just don't understand". All you can do is be an open ear, guide her in the right direction, and hope the things you've taught her will stick with her!

I raised forr girls and the way your feeling right now is not only normal but extremely GOOD for the teen.   My girls are all adults now and are all my best friends even though I was SO strict with them as teens.

I know it is hard with teens, and you right they do like at us like we are the villian sometimes but I really do think that she IS learning from you what is right and what is wrong, she will grow into a women who appreciates the times you said NO or the times that you told her like it was.

Hang in there, soon enough you will be giving her advice to her teen daughter :)
