Daughter tiring to rule the house
Good Morning Kanga
You have your hands full here Kanga. Your daughter being defensive and feeling threatened can be signs of her blowing off steam and venting...and obviously missing her mum...
Do you have a GP that you are comfortable with? A visit to her/him would be a good move right now..If that isnt possible your local council/shire usually have a social worker that can visit...this would be a huge help for your family...
Please let us know how you go
