I have a wonderful daughter who is an adult and is going through a very hard time, just moved back home with no job. Her self esteem over the years has steadily gone down to nothing. She has 3 hot button issues and try to talk to her about any of those and you are asking for a fight; she yells or talks loudly alot, her hygiene, and finding a job. I love her dearly but she becomes so defensive so quickly she hears only what she wants from what you say, she finds every reason in the book for not getting a job but you can tell she's miserable but trying to help her brings a flood of negative answers. My stress level is through the roof, my family is considering an "intervention" to try to get her to understand how she is acting. Any other suggestions? I'm at a loss.
