Hi Sarika! Adolescence is an age where child goes through lots of stress and trauma. they have to come to terms with so many changes taking place in their life. Some of the ways u could win yr child's confidence would be: 1. Accepting that as she is growing up, she would not confide as much in you as before. So not poking and asking her to share what's going on in life would help. 2. Giving her space to realize what's happening to her like bodily changes, psychological changes and change in self image according to what others perceive of her. 3. Sometimes accepting the way she is trying to dress up and praising her for her choice would make her happy. 4. Discussing with her how u have gone through this stage when she is in good mood and ready to talk can also help in bridging the gap. 5. when she wants to share something with u , not being judgemental would help her open up. 6. Doing activities like going out for a movie of her choice, wearing clothes of her choice or cooking her favorite food along with her would also bring u both closer to each other. 7. Being her friend and seeing things from her point of view in other words being empathetic and forgiving her for mood swings and unappropriate behavior and discussing the same later at an appropriate time . Hope these steps would go a long way in bridging the gap between two of u and make mother daughter relationship stronger.

Hello Sarika, I agree with Shipra. it is a delicate time of her growing up. be a friend to her and let go a bit of all the parental concerns and interferances that we may have. give her suggestions or opinions when she asks for it or when it is matter of safety. otherwise give her some freedom in a balanced way.

Hi Sarika, assuming you want to develop a stronger relationship with your daughter, you could 1) spend some time with her like a friend. Go out for a coffee, or a movie. And just be a friend not a parent. Listen to her gossips, enjoy them genuinely and don't judge 2) Share some secrets or anecdotes of your past with her. this will help her see you as a friend and she too might be prompted to share some with you 3)join a class toegther.. a sport/dance/cookery whatever you two share interests in 4) and most importantly, respect her growing age. Avoid interefering, giving too many instructions, or hovering around her too much. give her her space and time. If she gets her space, she too will realize the importance of your company. hope thiss helps.
