I have 2 daughters and I have always been proud of who they were. Now not so much. My oldest is soon to be 16 and all of a sudden has changed what she likes to do, what she wants to look like and who her friends are.
She was so beautiful and popular ( blonde hair, blue eyed cheerleader - the american dream) , and now she wants purple highlights, she is hanging around with kids who obviously dont have many friends ( one has lazy eyes and one looks like a shorter, fatter Roseanne). She gave up cheerleading without talking to us first. She is actually turning into a geek and I cannot stand it.
It is like I do not even know her anymore !

Teens most times will do things to upset parents!... Go back in time and think were you "The all American girl"?....never smoked, drink, etc??... Don't worry it will pass................ As long as you keep showing your "horror" face, things won't change....... My 16 year old cut his eyebrows with two lines on each side................. Do I like it?? NOOOOOOOOO but, they are always eager to show that what you don't like ...they loved!!.. Patience... just be patient
