Our expert says:
it does sound as if what your granddaughter is asking for is space rather than you out of her life. This is very typical of someone her age who is entering adolescence where time to yourself becomes more important, and also a time where a number of your thoughts and feelings feel intensely private.
She also has the issues to deal with around her mom and dad. What I suggest you consider is not calling her every day, but that you ensure that she knows that you think about her a lot and that whenever she needs you you will be there. Knowing that will be important to her and give her the space to grow.
