Ideally the two of you would benefit from going to see a family therapist to deal with the issues that cause so much anger - especially the anger being expressed by your daughter in the way she is behaving.

A good organisation to contact is FAMSA their website is www.famsa.org.za

Even if your daughter refuses to engage it may help you to speak with someone about the difficulties you are experiencing.
