1) It seems that you expect your dd to feel the exact same way about your mother as you do. But she can't..........because she's a generation removed. And she's young. So the full impact of mortality and what it will be like to miss grandma hasn't hit her yet. Of course she can't feel all the feelings of grief that you have. You don't want to spend the next year or so being mad at your dd. So give up the expectations that she should feel the way you do.
you say you 13yo doesn't care your mom is coming to the end of her life. I beg to differ. I bet this is her way of dealing with it (acting out) as children just don't have the coping skills like adults do.
do you have access to hopsice counseling or support groups? this might help her cope better.
