My dd, 15, acts embarrassed of my dh, my ds, 11, and me and lashes out at times w/nastiness..."ugh, Dad, just be quiet", or the eye roll, or a shove to the brother or even the slamming of the door. Sometimes it's just that she'd like to spend the day doing nothing, but I try to encourage her to go outside on a beautiful day and don't allow TV or computer which is met w/mostly grumpiness. We feel that she's pretty lazy sometimes and tired and I just told her the TV will be off earlier than usual and if she slams the door again, it's coming off the hinges.
She won't talk about her bitchiness except to say, "you're making a big deal out of nothing". Do I just ignore her and leave her alone until she comes out of it? I don't want her to think it's OK. Anyone have any suggestions counter suggestive teen?
