My daughter never is happy. I give her things but it is never appreciated. It turns always to the negative. Ever since she was little, if I gave her a green cup she wanted a red cup. She is 14 and very jealous of my 11 year old son. She does not want to go to counselors. She always makes up stories that it is all my fault and will not tell the truth. How do you help a child like that. I love her but I am running out of things to try. Her father that is my X is also Narcissist. Is it hereditary and what can I do to change her or can I? I have always tried to please her but it always changes to the negative. I felt sorry for her because her dad wanted to take my son to a drag race and bond with him and not her. I decided to take her to get her hair colored and cut. Then she was all mad because it was cut to short and did not look like she wanted. It just never works for me to do things for her. She said that she knew that I did it only because I felt sorry for her. Help!!!!!!
