Updated on February 28, 2012

Hello fellow hubbers I just wanted to vent a little, and possibly gain some advise at the same time! I am so mad, frustrated, and confused right now; as a parent to a teenage girl. Recently my daughter and I have been getting along so well but, as of a week ago her attitude totally switched up! I have no clue and I ask her what is wrong and she says that there is nothing wrong. However, everytime I speak to her or ask her a question her response is with such an attitude and with a roll of the eyes. She is actually hurting my feelings a little as well. Futhermore, I want to just drop her with a kick in her butt and punch to the face (lol i'm just venting i'm not going to actually do it)!

First of all I don't know what gave this little girl the idea that she can raise her voice to me and secondly I think she forgot who brought her into this world, with a hard and painful labor. I think I just give her to much of my attention and spoiled her a little too much, lately! Like my title states discombobulating; this is exactly how I feel at this very moment. I usually can read my daughter and know or figure out what is bothering her but, I am at a lost. I ask her what's wrong and if she is okay, and she says nothing is wrong. I feel like she just wants to push me over the edge so I can get upset and lash out at her.

Moreover, my daughter has everything she needs and almost everything she wants. I wonder if it is girls or a boy that can be causing problems with her at school. Usually she tells me what she did at school and what friend was making her mad or made her happy. She can not have a boyfriend so I don't think it is that! Maybe she is having boy issues and she feels she can't tell me because she isn't allowed to have a boyfriend? I don't know what to do I am stumpped with this one!

Overall, I hope its nothing to serious (in general) or something that is seriously hurting her or maybe she is just sad and upset about something I did. On the other hand, it may be just that her hormones are raging out of control and is causing her to have crazy mixed emotions! Whatever it may be I have not a clue this time and it's driving me crazy. She knows that I love her and would do anything or try everything I could to make her feel better or help her if something is wrong but, she has just not been her self this past week, so I don't know what to do!

So I ask anyone out there who reads this and has experienced the same thing can you please give me a clue or what do you think I should do?

Thanks for reading my hub and have a great night, sincerely a caring and discombobulated mom!=}

The looks

      Looks and sounds like she is hitting those teenage years! Ignore the facial expressions. We love to exaggerate at that age! A dance party, yea, is a very good idea. Maybe get her involved in the planning of it. Good luck, keep sharing, great hub.

      Never react harshly or show that you are annoyed. Be patient and calm. Slip in the sentence "tell me if you want any help". Do not be worried. They settle down eventually. Clouds will pass and let the sun shine. Relax and smile
