It just seems like she's lost hope.
She came up to me today out of the blue that she doesn't know what she wants for Christmas (which isn't like her).
I had a talk with her today to see exactly where she's at, I asked her how she would feel if she could go back to school, and she said she just wants to stay with me.
I asked her if there was anything she was looking forward to, and she said she made a wish the other day and it didn't come true.
I asked her more about Christmas, I told her it would be very different to how it normally is, and she said we could have a feast at home, but when I said Santa won't bring her much this year, she said we will just wait until next year then.
I asked her about how she has been feeling emotionally, and she said sometimes shes happy, but sometimes she feels something else. When I asked her what that was she just shrugged and said she doesn't know what that is (red flag!)
The major things I have noticed is she doesn't plan for anything anymore...when lock downs first started she was planning things to do once it was lifted. All that talk has stopped. She seems more irritable than normal as well...throwing tantrums when she hasnt thrown one all year, screaming at her sister...I know sibling rivalry is a thing but I know my daughter, something is wrong.
Question is, what can I do to help her?
