  • i wouldn't say anything. i don't know how many times as a kid i told a friend i hated my mom. i mean thats what kids do. if you tell her you know about it than that gives her even more reason to be mad at you and vent even more to her friends and relatives about it.

  • Didn't you ever tell your friends that you hated one or both of your parents? If you don't want your daughter being in contact with the cousin, then block the cousin's number from your daughter's phone.

  • that happened to me when i was about her age. my mom stormed upstairs to my room and yelled at me for writing that IN MY DIARY. i'm not mad at her and i don't think i was mad at her then, i was just so scared she would think i really hated her. i was just hating what she did to me, which i don't even remember what, but after writing that, i didn't even remember writing it. she didn't mean a thing. teens say that all the time, i hate this i hate that. don't feel hurt by it. trust me, i hated my mom many many times after that, and she's staying with me helping out with my son while my husband's in iraq. we're the closest pair, so don't you worry ! :D

  • Let it be, she is a tween and most tweens and teens "hate" their mothers. She really doesn't hate you, she's just mad that you didn't let her do what she wanted. Get used to it, you will hear it a lot.

  • I told my kids to hate me all they wanted to, they'll get over it. A mom has to do what she thinks is right. She doesn't really hate you either she just hates what you did. There is a difference.

  • i wouldnt worry about it. when my sister and i said i hate you to my mom, should would always say well i will always love you no matter what or something along those lines.
