See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My DD is 15 and is extremely moody. There seems to be no middle with her. I want to remain close with her, but there are times I just can' t stand her rudeness and selfishness. My question is... how do I stay calm and not call her a B-----, like I am thinking. (there is no other word to describe her behavior) On a good day, she and I get along great and she tells me a lot of things her friends do not tell their moms- we are very close. But there are days (like today) that she makes me crazy by slamming doors and being rude and selfish. Should I punish her and if so, how? She seems too old to 'ground'. What to do? I want to have that fine line between disciplinarian and best friend. (btw.. my DH stays out of it unfortunately- he says to ignore her)
