Recognize and accept that you cannot control how, what, and if another person communicates with you. A lot of the tension between you two stems from you trying to force her to communicate the way you want her to, and holding her accountable when she does not. That’s a degree of control you simply cannot exert over another adult, regardless of whether or not they’re your child. It’s bizarre and very antagonizing behaviour, and it is absolutely part of what is driving her away.
