Hi, I'm 16 and my brother killed himself while his 3 year old slept in her bed in February this year. My niece has been living with me and my parents since her dad died (her mother's dead too) and she's been really attached to me, she literally won't go anywhere without me and refuses to eat if I'm not at home. My niece wants to talk about her daddy but although I answer her questions and try and tell her it's not her fault I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle as she'll get really upset and cry if I talk about her daddy with her, but if I don't answer her when she asks a question then she'll scream and hit out at me. I really don't know what to do for the best. please help.
