My DD will tell me something that's going on in her life, generally a problem or something that confuses her, but then when I offer advice or try to talk about it, she says it's none of my business! She does this quite a bit, and I don't get it. When I tell a friend a problem, it's because I want their input, or at least another perspective. It never fails that she does this to me, why tell me something that she knows that I will want to discuss if she isn't wanting to talk? For instance, she started dating a boy recently who is a good friend of her best friend. She told me that she thinks her BF is in love with her best friend (the two of them grew up across the street from each other and have been inseparable since they were 6, but have never dated), when I tried to offer advice on how to handle the situation, she got upset and didn't want to hear it. Why tell me? This is a fairly common occurrence. She knows I will want to help, but she doesn't seem to want the help-even when I can see she's plainly upset. I don't understand why she'd tell me something upsetting,
