Once so close with my daughters..as soon as they became teenagers they decided that they hated me. Will this ever get any better??

  • YES!!! Being a teenager is awful, on both the kid and the parent, but it gets better. When I hit about 22 or 23, I was amazed that my mother let me survive that long. I hope for your girls it happens sooner, so you don't have to wait so long. But it will be worth it. :)

  • yep i went through this with my mom. i mean i didn't hate her and stayed realatively close to her through my teen years but we did have some drama. drama where i ran off at stayed at a friend's house for three days or so and you know what i don't even remember why. but anyhoo i talk to my mom just about every day now. i love her to pieces and couldn't ask for a better suited mom for me.

  • She will come around. Everyone is different I guess. We were "joined at the hip" until she entered Jr. High. I warned her before she started that we would probably "butt heads" just so she knew I knew what I was talking about later. I have always tried to be honest with her and make everything about her, instead of me. She accused me of being over-protective a few times and she was "snooty" for a few years, but she came around and we are close again. I think kids just have to find their way. If you raise them with self-confidence and self-esteem as a priority and set a good example, I believe they may stray a little but they will figure out that you have their best interest at heart and you love them.
