  • it is hormones and the fact that their brain is not fully developed and the development is stressful on their system so they get overwhelmed easily and are prone to being over dramatic and bratty

  • It is because their hormones are going haywire and they can't always help it. It is NOT every teen girl that does this.

  • A lot of it has to do with hormones and the changes they are going through. Not all do this and they usually out grow it. I would try and talk to them about this and try to be understanding.

    Good Luck!

  • My teens don't do that and they are 17. maybe you're not keeping up with their maturity level?

    Answer by onethentwins at 3:49 PM on Jan. 17, 2011

  • I have to agree with other posters (1) not all teens do this and (2) HORMONES!!!!
