Our expert says:
Unfortunately, many teenagers go through an incredibly annoying phase of feeling unloved ( nomatter how much love and care they receive) and trying to provoke dramatic situations like this. And of course to write about it in her diary, recording the drama for later use. I don't understand "fr" --- was her father, or some other adult out there with her, and not helping ? If so, shame on them for being foolish and unhelpful. OR do you mean friend ? If so, what did the friend's mother think ? And then she brings you the diary to read, to embarrass and influence you.
BUT, look at what she wrote. She is saying that she feels sad, and that she loves you very much, but doubts your love for her. I know it's hard if there's more than one kid, but set aside some time for her alone ( it doesn't have to be very long --- its quality that counts ). And tell her that you feel very busy and find it hard to find time for all of them --- take the time to share some activity with her, and assure her that you love her ---and that this whole incident arose because you loved her so much you were scared by her being outside when there could have been some danger. Maybe you can ask whether she feels old enough to help you with some chores, or with the younger kids ? She may value feeling important and significant in helping the household work better
