Using the following statement: "My daughter and I don't get along well. I feel that I am really trying, but she doesn't respond. Only last week I brought her a present, but she just ignored it" write a confrontation statement. After the confrontation it needs to be followed up with a check out. Thank you for your help.
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to contemplate on a scenario and provide a sample response. I think you should do so in a concise manner, but with a well-thought out response. I suggest this simple outline:
1. Your response/confrontation
2. Rationale for response - 100 words
3. Check out
4. Rationale for Check out
This outline should yield 300 or so words which should cover what you need. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.
