I dont think this can be normal. I have a daughter in the 4th grade, her dad has never been in her life, & i've been trying to do the best at raising her as I know how to do. I had her young at 16 yrs old & I just feel like giving up most of the time. She's constantly getting on my nerves with her bad attitudes, not listening to me or her teachers, she talks in class & gets in trouble, I have to tell her repeatedly to do something & the list goes on! Sometimes I feel like I don't even want her anymore. I wish I could give her to her dad or somebody but unfortunately, he's no where around. That sounds terrible, i know but I dont feel im doing a good job w/her & what if it just gets worse from here on out?? The last thing i need or want is an out of control teen!! Someobdy help me please im desperate for answers & i hate myself for feeling like i hate my own kid.Answer Question

You need help and guidance. See if you two can to go a therapist. You need to learn how to communicate with her and she needs to learn that her actions are only hurting herself. As to the fact that you want to give her away, well, sometimes when we're at the end of our rope we feel like giving up. It's only human nature. Don't beat yourself up but focus on a solution. Again, therapy may really help (and don't be afraid of looking around for a therapist you like).
