As far as her having someone to talk to, I am very, very, very open and frank with her. I never felt like I could talk to my parents about things and I vowed to be the opposite. The problem is, she is an extremely reserved person so I can be as open as I want, but she doesn't respond. Not just to me; to anyone. She is pretty close to my sister and I have told her time and time again she can reach out to her at any time, but she doesn't. She is close to her dad, but still, just a reserved person. All "grown up" talks we have ever had have been initiated by me with no questions, anything from her. I always end with a "please come to me if you think of anything" but she never does, and I always bring it back up into conversation even months down the road just to reiterate things.

We do have a great family life. She loves her 3 siblings dearly, especially the youngest (who is a 6 year old boy.) She has acted like his mother from the time he was born and before he started school, she used to "steal" him out of his bed at night to sleep with him. My oldest and I actually go away for mini-girls weekends together about 3-4 times a year as well. I feel like we have the best relationship that her personality allows us to have. She is a really, really good kid. No teenage drama, etc. At times, she will have just a hint of that teenage attitude in her voice and inside I'm rejoicing because it's a "normal" response. But I think the reason she is that way is so she doesn't draw attention to herself.
You are doing all the right things for your daughter. It seems like she has a lot of things going for her. i.e no teenage rebellion, great home life, people that love and care for her, close relationship with her dad and little brother.

How does she do with your son's class in Tuesday's. If she is willing to spend an entire day with a class of 6 year olds then she has a gift. Maybe working with kids is in her future. Encourage her gifts.

Today we are doing a major overhaul. I will give details later. TGIF everyone.
