You have a good relationship with your daughter, which can be maintained by respecting her privacy, continuing to talk WITH her, being there to advise when she asks -- not when you want to tell her what to do. It is often painful to see our daughters change. However, they become the women we hope they will. I encourage you to focus on all her good qualities. Be vigilant, but not overbearing. Enjoy her journey with her.
