Most parents have this desire, but it is something that cannot be forced. The ideal situation is for the parent to earn the child's respect by being a caring person and a role model by living an ethical life and practicing his or her beliefs and principles. Most children respond to this, but some don't. Some may not appreciate their parents until they have achieved a degree of maturity. The quality of parent-child relationships can't really be controlled - trust has to develop over time and through shared experience.

You can't make someone believe something - you can only work to convince them -with evidence or with the strength of your feelings -that your beliefs are righteous and true,
Believing is a choice. You can force someone to say they agree with you but it's not possible to force someone to really agree with you in their mind.
Of course there's "brainwashing" - psychological tricks used by people who want to force their beliefs on others.

You can't truly "make" her do anything, but if you really feel that your ways/beliefs are best, show her by example instead of talking about it. Give her concrete proof that your beliefs work well by living it.

You really can't... And imposing your beliefs onto her might just push her away further.

Try to connect with her and ask her what her views are. Don't force it. There's nothing worse than having someone shove their own views down your throat.

You wouldn't like it if someone who believed differently than you came up to you and shoved their beliefs down your throat, would you? I would hope not.

Just try to be civil and listen to her perspective.
