At what age did your teen start seeing you as the big bad wolf? My daughter and I have had a stressful relationship for the past few years and it is only getting worse. She is 16 and in a relationship with this little feller that I really do think is a good kid. Things seemed to be going along just fine until she gets told that she cannot make plans without running them threw me. She has chores to do daily that she tries to get out of daily unless she wants something. Her grades are alright but she could do better, she is getting a really low grade in her AFTA class. In general she is a great kid happy and out going but when she does not get her way she turns on me like a viper and strikes out at everything I say or do. A friend of hers has a mother that is so wrapped up in all the drama of her kids that she even got on Facebook and got into a mud slinging contest with a girl that broke up with her son. I would NEVER think of doing that. This woman earns the title of "Momma K" from my daughter. Why? I can't open my mouth without her sitting there and rolling her eyes, giving a long suffering sigh, or just lashing out in one way or another. WTF?? Any suggestions? My mother says to just leave her and lone and dont preasure her. Let the little things go. Well when you let them go and go and go and she gets worse and worse and worse, isn't it better to nip them in the bud early on?
