  • Sounds normal to me. I was a moody teenager. It doesnt matter she isnt on her period her hormones are still all over the place

  • I think it is completely normal. Do you know what she is doing while in her room? My teenage daughter spends a lot of time reading and I require that her door stay unlocked so that I can peek in on her from time to time.

  • It depends on the teenager. Ours haven't acted like that - including our daughter.

  • I think it depends on the teen, I was like this as a teenager but neither of my boys are. They enjoy spending time in the family room with me and if they aren't with me they are are always on the go with activities or friends.

  • I have three girls and they were/are all different but there was a lot going on with their parent situation, on top of school, and hormones, and their friend status. Regardless, I could always get them to go with me or without me to visit and/or spend the night with my sister. A real outlet for them and with someone I trust. They would talk with her about things they would not talk to me about. They could express themselves (happy or sad or depressed). She would get them up and moving as well, and keep me clued in. To this day they love her dearly. Even when she tells them to drop the drama or get up off the couch and do something. Got to love your sisters! Maybe there is someone you and your daughter can go visit together?

  • Sounds like my 11 yr. old. She looks 14 and has the hormones of a teen. It's gonna be a fun ride. She was so easy as a toddler and her older brother was a hellion. Now the rolls are reversed, so I might get some peace with him (until he discovers girls that is.)
