My daughter's defiant behavior seemed to have come on overnight
My soon to be 13 year old has developed a really nasty attitude of defiance, over night it seems. Refuses to go anywhere she doesn't feel like going, talks back, slams doors, screams at me, etc. Her father and I are divorced and she has free reign at his home, no rules, no chore, no bedtime, TV limits, etc. She is also very ungrateful of all the driving, errands and upteenth things I do for her. It's really difficult to be around her. We had a good weekend and then out of nowhere she went ballistic on me, telling me not to talk to her, because I questioned something she told me about making the soccer team. She also tells white lies all the time and I told her that once she starts lieing about one thing, she will lie about anything or everything. That was the last straw for me. I let her know in a very irritable and agitaded voice that were it not for me running around for her at the last minute, she would not have been able to try out for the soccer team. I had to run to the doctor last minute (other end of town) to get the forms filled out because she claimed she had no interest in trying out, and I had to take her soccer things to school the day of tryouts (she called me at 7:45am from school) which was out of my way and not on my schedule, and it was the week she was with her father who lives on the other end of town from me. I have never hit her, but I feel like slapping her when she yells at me. I've had it!
