My 19yo daughter going through rough times lately in her relationship (boyfriend). She tells me that I don't seem very caring. Which surprises me because that is not how I see myself. I think because I don't immediately cry at things she thinks are "cry-worthy" or don't lose my temper often that she feels that i am detached.
I feel that I am always there for my kids - to listen non-judgmentally, to comfort, to guide them, to give my honest opinion (if asked). I try to be in the state that, "i am ok with whatever happens" because what is done is done and it is no use obsessing over it. So i listen, give practical advice, if asked/warranted, and go from there.
Am I deceiving myself in my so-called "presence"?
