I have a 22 year old daughter who, to everyone else, is the ideal daughter. Outside the house she is bubbly, chatty etc but at home she stays in her bed/room all the time and doesn't really interact with her dad or I. We don't ask her to do any chores etc, her bedroom is a tip and all her clothes are washed/ironed for her. She tends not to eat with us. She is overweight and neither her dad or I am. I used to be and both her and I joined a slimming club about 6 years ago and lost weight. I kept mine off but unfortunately she went away to college and was very unhappy and put hers back on. I feel she resents me now as I have kept my weight off. We used to go shopping together and get on really well. Now she barely speaks to me except if she wants somethin. My worry is first her health due to being overweight and secondly the fact that she seldom goes out other than to work. She is a teacher and loves her job and is getting on very well at it. Each so often I suggest us going out for lunch/ shopping etc but she always has an excuse. I'm very hurt by her actions. My own relationship with my mother is awful and always has been and I have tried so hard to ensure the same thing didn't happen with my own daughter. For 18 years I succeeded but now it has all gone wrong. My husband and I tried to broach her weight issues about 3 years ago and it caused consternation so I vowed never to go there again. Anyone else gone through this with their daughter?
