My 15 yr old is EXTREMELY angry at her dad. On Christmas day i discovered proof of his affair. She listened at the door after sending her 10yr old sister down stairs. She was already angry at him because he is an acholic. She talked to him and saw him a for a few weeks, but at the end of January she stopped contact. She doesn't want to have ANYTHING to do with him. She is so angry she says that her dad died and she doesn't know who that other person is. He isn't helping much. He is frustrated and ready to give up. I try to help him but, i'm angry too and didn't know how much til a friend pointed it out. I don't know if she is picking up on it. A friend told her that there are no bad people in the world just good people who do bad things. She told her dad that and that she believes that there are bad people, that's the only way you can find the good ones, and he is a bad person. I don't know what to do. Her anger is not helpful, I'm afraid it will hurt her later on in life. She is in counseling but we are having trouble getting appts. I'm also in the process of divorcing her dad which helps her a little. But i'm afraid her anger will eat her up. I am at a loss on how to help her. I am her friend but, i have to be her mom first.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
