Although you may not have the answers your daughter is looking for, please be open to helping her anyway. She may need you to guide her to information sources, or she may just want you to hold her hand. Let her tell you what she needs from you.
The best thing you can do for your daughter during this time is to be supportive. You may feel anger, disappointment, or even depression because of her choices. Now is not the time to express those feelings towards her. What’s done is done and all the tears in the world aren’t going to undo it. Alienating your daughter will only make the situation worse. She needs you now more than ever.
