Hi,
Iv been having issues with my 15 year old daughter for about 6 months, as soon as i realised she was struggling with day to day things and behaving quite badly i contacted school and the GP and within a few weeks she was having counselling with CAMS.
This doesn't seem to have helped and shes progressed and become worse.
Over the weekend she has fallen out with her 16 year old sister and  told her she hates her and never wants to see her again! She has stayed with her dad this weekend and due home tomorrow.
Im dreading it because iv had to ask my parents to have my oldest daughter to keep them apart and im worried she will ask to live with her dad full time because she knows this is my worst nightmare.
Im also struggling to understand if shes just very hateful or if there is more to it. But she hates the CAMS meetings because there not letting her miss lessons or taking her side!
Im hart broken, worried and dont want to have to choose between my girls or have them apart.

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and upsetting situation. Dealing with these situations is very difficult, even if her issues are a part of her behaviour they are not an excuse to act out. Are you in contact with the CAMS people? Maybe ask their advice? You can contact Young Minds, they're an organisation that helps families in similar situations to yourself, you can call their freephone helpline on 0808 802 5544. Have you spoken to your older daughter about the situation, asked her how she feels about it? 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.
