    As long as stay in her life and set boundaries and show her you care for her she will not resent you she won't Your mother situation maybe quite different from your daughters
    just stay in her life guide her and tell her often how much you care about her she will come to see you for who you truly are a caring father

    That's what I am praying for ... and striving to be.

    Re: Question about daughter (17 years old)

    I'm happy to tell everyone that my daughter called me yesterday. She was very nervous and her voice shook when she tried to talk. I was truly glad to hear from her and I answered the phone cheerfully - even though a part of me was a bit sullen. I just fought the urge to be parental. If she wants to talk about what happened at some future date that is fine, but I know she understands on some level so there was no reason to bring it up or to chastise her. I was just glad to hear her voice and I was proud of myself for not doing what my parents would have done in a similar situation. (which would have been to rub it in)

    I've learned to appreciate small victories over my sometimes deeply engrained ways of thinking.
