H left last week after telling our DD that he had found someone else. DD is now saying she doesn't care, it's in the past, she does not care about him and she's fine. She says she only cries when she sees me crying.
Is this a defense mechanism? Is she trying to keep it inside and it'll explode when she is older?
FYI, I will get her to see school counsellor after half term but I am struggling that she does not share my grief and does not seem bothered.
Has anyone see this in their DC?
Strange reaction from 11yo DD after separation - advice pls
