My daughter gets attached to anyone!!! She seeks attention from pretty much anyone (mainly men) she is 15. She says that she wants them to hug her and be a mum and dad!!!!!! I am at my wits end and don't know what to anymore!!! She already had a child in need meeting and sees CAHMS. I honestly don't know what to do anymore. I was in a abusive relationship for 8 years and I don't know if this Is why. She just pushes me and her father away!!

Teens are always in such a hurry to grow up. If only they realised they've got the whole of the rest of their lives to be adult in and just a few short years left as a child.

Is she generally unhappy at home? Does she have plans and ambitions for the future?

Do you do anything with her that she enjoys? Or give her much positive attention?

- these would be the questions I'd ask myself to start with in your situation.

Also might be worth phoning her CAMHS contact for a chat about and to see if they've got any suggestions on how to handle it.

In the meantime try to stay calm and maybe talk to her about only trusting people you know quite well.
