Background: she's 9; I have 2 other children (10 & 2) My DD and 10 yo son fight all the time! Over the smallest stuff!! I know that's normal, and they know the arguing gets them into trouble, but they do it anyway.
9 yo DD is starting to go through early puberty; hormones are crazy; body is changing. She cries over the smallest thing and argues back all the time. She will talk in a baby voice if you tell her not to do something (which is over and over again)
I don't remember being like this at the age of 9 and my mother said I was almost a teenage when I started acting like this.
I've tried talking to DD, but it's always "I knooooooooow!" or "I didn't do anything!!" (then lots of crying)
Does it get better????????
