Almost a year ago I got divorced. I know divorce is not easy for anyone, but it is so much harder on the kids. My oldest daughter tries to pretend things arent bothering her, but I can tell there is something wrong. When she gets home from school, she goes and hides in her room watching tv. I have tried to get her to join in on family time more, watching tv together, eating dinner together(which I actually make all my kids do), when it comes to dinner, since she has no choice.. she will sit down and eat with us, she eats real fast, and will not share anything about her day like my other two kids do. I have tried to talk to her alone, telling her if there is anything at all bothering her, she can tell me about it. She tells me nothing is wrong. Is this just a teenage thing, or is it something I should worry about?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
