I am a mother of a 17 year old and our relationship has gone from great to worse.  We can not communicate without a massive blow up.  It seems the harder I try the worse it gets.  I want her to know how much I love her and how proud I am of her.  It is killing me to not be able to help her.
Our objective is to better understand the struggles our child faces and to learn the skills to improve our relationship and provide a supportive environment and also improve on our own emotional responses, attitudes and effectiveness as a family leaders
