Anita, I think at this time for you to become a friend to your daughter. do not appear anxious in front of her (though you may feel) or she may hide things from you. casually ask her indirect questions to keep yourself abreast with her social life. spend some quality time with her.. take her out for coffee/icecream/burger whatever she likes (just the two of you) and chit chat... tell her about your young days but as a friend rather than lecturing. children need a confidante and friend at such times. be that to her.

Come to think of our days as a teenager. We have been there and done that. So it is advisable to take it as a phase. The lesser the reaction from your end, the more you will find her opening up to you. Please take care of following things. 1. it is advisable not to force the teenager to share what chit chats she had with her Friends Or keeping a check on her Facebookb account Or her mobile phone. This will make her hide things more from you. 2. Try and have faith in your child that she would not do something wrong. Only this way it would reflect in your behavior. 3. Try to be friends with your daughter. Look for ambient environment and feasible time when you could have a one-on-one with share some quality time with her. You can take her for a cup of coffee, going to ice cream parlor or While on your way back after watching a movie. 4. The message u want to communicate need not be direct but in the form of a friend's tale or one of your secrets you would like to share with her 5. Give some time for things to seep in. An overnight change should not be expected. 6. Don't react to her when she shares something with you. This might make her hide things in furture 7. Request your child to help you with daily chores. This will further strengthen the bond that you share with her. Praise your child for small efforts that she makes to bridge the gap. 8. You could discuss attraction towards opposite sex is natural. But it's better to maintain safe distance. You could warn her of the consequences again with examples. The idea is not to scare the child but to make her aware. All the best!
