  • Yep that's a 15 yr old. Just make sure you have something you do to calm yourself down, because it only gets worse before it gets better. Wait til 16 comes. :)

  • Yep that sounds about right. I tell mine since they know everything they should hurry up and get jobs so they can move out before I suck everything they know from their brains because Im a moron. I also ask them if they know what teenager means? They say Im almost an adult. I say no its means non adult.

  • welcome to the world of a teenager. ;-)

    She will be like that for a really long time. And there is nothing you can do about it. If you try, it will probably get worse. ;-)

    ive been a 15year old myself... been there, done that... smarter now ;)

  • teenagers think they know everything. till they get out in the world and finally realize that they dont know anything and that they still run to their mommy. its just a waiting game trust me. i was like that till i join the military i was wrong i didn't know a dang thing about the world

  • YUP, YUP, YUP! Teenagers are the only ones who know anything!

  • Just because "that is the way teenagers are" does not mean you have to put up with it. YOU are the MOM and SHE is the KID. When I was growing up my parents demanded respect from me, but they also demanded themselves to give me respect. Because we each respected eachother I think my teen years went smoothly for all three of us!
