I can understand your concern. First thing is not to take any actions personally. Your daughter's behaviour is not reflecting anything about you. Many times children behave in a particular manner as they are not able to communicate effectively. You need to start consciously building a "Connection" with your daughter. You can do that by just praising little appropriate action of hers. Ignore situations where you really cannot change much. Let certain actions just be. work on your connection with her. Let her feel you are there to support her. Communicate with her your feelings. Try to empathise with her and what makes her do certain things. Do not criticise or judge her but understand her and let her feel supported. Give her a hug. Just tell her you love her. Do not expect anything in return for these actions of yours. Let it be an unconditional hug. Play some video games with her or do certain activities together. These will help in building a connection. When you are looking at sibling relationship, as a parent you can help them to set some rules and boundaries amongst themselves. Do not always try to control or interfere with fights they have. Let them figure out a solution by themselves. Show them that you are not taking sides. Tae care.
