This kind of situation is hard. I truly believe if you show affection to your daughter, maybe approach her with a hug, arm around her shoulder, and ask how she is doing, and go from there to see if she will talk with you as to what is the problem between her and her mother. Express how much you both love her and encourage her to work it out with her mother. Most times speaking from the heart works wonders. Give it a try.

You don't give enough information. How old is your daughter, what is the problem about? Mothers and daughters often have problems with each other. You may not be able to do anything, just make sure you are supportive to both and let them deal with the problem. Stay out of it and just encourage them to be as open as possible. Sometime these things take years or resolve. I'm sure by showing your love for both this will help.

I hope my daughter and her mother will soon be close together.But as a father my daughter's silence pains me.
