I was wondering if anyone had a teenage child that is giving them grief? I have a 13 year old daughter who seems to have had dormant hormones lying about waiting for the day she turned 13!!! what a horrible age! I understand that we all go through it but I don't remember it being like that for me do you?!

totally can relate i have two teenage daughters and a teenage son whew!!! just take deep breaths count to ten and try to relate to them in a quiet manner(difficult when you feel like strangling them i know)for some reason they turn into demons for a couple of years but i hear it does get better so chin up and breathe

Its nice to know that there are others out there that can relate to my problem. I actually have 6 children but my eldest son is a diamond!! It is my eldest daughter that is the worry, then I have 3 more daughters to follow her!! I cannot believe how her mood changes so quickly, and I have now started counting to 20!! lol. 10 just didn't work! good news the last one is a son so hopefully I can relax a little when he gets to her age??

sounds horrible, and I thought I had it bad this morning when my dog came into season. She becomes a real handfull but it only lasts a few days and I don't have to worry about it for another 6 months. My friends daughter was OK until 15, and then she was so rude and such a problem. She has turned out to be a credit to her father now so there is still hope for you. good luck

I sometimes wonder about the saying never work with kids or animals!!! well most of the time she is ok. But when she gets one on her she can be in a foul mood for days. She isn't naughty, naughty, but just bad tempered with my other children and quite aloof with me and her father... It's great not having to worry about hormones for 6 months!! I'm sure she will turn out ok like your friends daughter. Thanks for your help

Mine are all grown now, but I remember those teenage years. Hang in there -- it gets better!
