My daughter is lost and I can’t take her cruelty anymore

DEAR DEIDRE: My daughter says horrible things to my granddaughter, her niece.

She constantly undermines me and puts me down.

I feel like she’s bullying me.

I am 66. My granddaughter came to live with us when she was two years old after her mother took her life.

My son, her father, broke up and I became her guardian.

She is now 17 and has grown into a beautiful young woman.

But unfortunately, my 36-year-old daughter has gone the other way — she’s bitter and uncomfortable.

When she starts her insults, I have to walk away to protect myself.

I could happily stand in the middle of a field and just scream.

I don’t think I can take any more, but how can I stop it?

DEIDRE SAYS: You did what you thought was best for your granddaughter.

Your daughter sounds jealous. The nasty words that come out of her mouth are about her DJing – not really about you.

Consider family therapy. I will send you my companion package for consultation.

It would help if you spoke to Family Lives (familylives.org.uk, 0808 800 2222) for parenting advice.
