through the next few years ....... DD is 13 and OMGosh.... The mood swings are going to kill me.... I can not do anything right... No matter what I say or do I end up being screamed at and the water works start.... Good example came home from work one day yelled her name up the stairs (arms full if groceries) she opens her door, then slams it stomps down stairs and screaches WHAT, WHAT I DO THIS TIME YOU BLAME ME FOR EVERYTHING.... Uh hi just wanted to let you know I was home... oh and stomps back upstairs...  I even called my mom and told her I was sorry if I was ever like this (dont rememeber ever being like this) and she confirmed that I was an easy teen.... DS is a SR this year and he has always been super easy....

Remember, your job isn't to make her happy. Her screeching would have gotten an immediate order to apologize. That done, the next thing would have been to remind her of the dangers of assuming.

My girls are 17 now (twins) and I think it got easier as the teens went on...well kinda...

The mood swings are fewer and shorter maybe...I know all kids are diff but maybe she will calm down once her hormones settle a bit...

GOOD LUCK!

you better sit her ass down and explain that no matter whats going on with her She will talk and treat you respectfully or there will be consequences.There is NO reason for her to be yelling stomping or screaming !

We have this conversation every time.... it just seems to go in one ear and out the other...  She does not, act this way to my DH just me.... We have taken things away, had long long long conversations ect...

Friday I came in with groceries and my daughter asked if I needed help. I told her no, but she could go ahead and pick up her art supplies on the dining room table I had told her about that morning. ( I did not raise my voice).She got mad at ME, said I didn't have to get all sassy about it, she was offering to help me, then went to her room without picking up the art stuff. It's an up and down road with these girls. I wasn't so bad, but I was scared to talk that way to my mom.

I hate to tell ya, but it's not just the girls with the mood swings.  I've made the comment before that I'm hanging on to my sanity by a thread!  We will all get through this, or so I'm told!  :)
