Hi I’m new and looking for support. My 14 yr old daughter is angry aggressive (verbally) and   Is making life a living nightmare. I left her dad when she was 3. We’re still good friends but that’s what we became. I had an verbally aggressive partner who was mentally abusive to me as well as my 2 girls my other was 5 at the time. My daughter hates my partner now we’ve been together 8 yrs and have a daughter together 3. My oldest is lovely kind caring, loving. My 14 yr old is abusive towards me. I have very little control until I loose it with her. I can’t live like this anymore. I’ve tried to get her help but she’s not interested and says she won’t go. I tell her I love her and I’m here to help her but she’s so horrid to me, little  one becomes upset. And my eldest is very angry how she treats me. I’m in an abusive relationship with my daughter

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and troubling situation. The most important part of discipline is consistency, even if it's difficult, continuing to try is important. If she's unable to stay with her father for a while, maybe Social Services could be helpful. They're not just there to remove children from their families, they're there to support families. You can read more about Social Services here. You may find it helpful to read our articles on teenage behaviour. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at askus@familylives.org.uk or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
