I would have to agree that no one should be forced to be around someone yet when children are growing up parents do have a right to decide who they are around in case they are with a crowd of people that will do their child any good but as they get older we have to trust our judgement that we did a good job in teaching them right from wrong and have to give them indepence and trust in their judgment as we can not be around them all the time and just hope that we did a good job in teaching our child to make the proper decisions . Also talking to your child a lot will help to bring a better connection between you and your child to be able to talk things out and get to know each other the same way as you would take the time to get to know anyone else in life .

Nobody should be forced to do anything. We all should have free agency and be able topractice it. Mother daughter bonds are usually tight, because nowhere else in the world do you have someone who gave you life, and raised you and will love you like no other ever will. But life gets in the way and bonds get broken. Doesn't mean feelings change. It sucks when you are younger and go through the I hate my family and any type of bonding with them sucks, phase. But one day you realize, they are your family and love you unconditionally, and where would you be without them.
