I have a 12 year old daughter who's mouth is driving me crazy! She has constant attitude and is so disrespectful, no matter what I take away from her (phone, computer use, friends over) she will be good while she is grounded but after she gets her privileges back she turns back into the mouthy pre-teen.

Is anyone going through the same thing or have been through it? Any advice on dealing with a 12 year old going on 25? Please help!

My girls are 13, 12, 11 and 10.  My son is 4.  I am looking forward to my son being a teenager more than I am looking forward to my girls being teenagers, lol.

All of my girls have been that way already.  Luckily they seem to be either growing out of that phase already or already out of that phase.  At least for the moment. 

Good Luck to you!  Volunteering is an excellent suggestion.

Thanks for the warning!  I know, lol...but at least I only have 1 boy.  I can handle that better than 4 girls as teenagers at the same time ;)

My poor husband.  He is going to have to deal with all of us girls on the same menstrual cycle too.

Oh well.  My husband and Kaden can commiserate with each other :)

You're Welcome!  There is a light at the end of the tunnel.  It may still be far away, but it is there :)
