One of my skids have been blantantly rude and disrespectful to me, and quite frankly it sucks. I know that others have had it much worse then I in dealing with their skids, but this was still a shock for me. SD11 has always been a little passive aggressive toward everyone but this time she seems specifically angry at me, and I have no clue why. Just last weekend I took her and my SS to Tahoe (DH was sick) to go tubing and we had a blast, and we got along great. This whole pre-teen mood swing stuff is just not cool, I have absolutely no patience for brattiness so I have to hold back big time.
Basically she has just been glaring at me everytime I look at her and has purposely ignored my requests of her or flat out said "no". The interesting thing is she seems all lovey dovey with DH now which she has not acted like for quite awhile. So I am wondering if it's some kind of jealousy thing? Or it could be because I have been defending her little brother when she is being mean to him. IDK, but it's frustrating and kind of out of the blue. She is a very emotional child though, I used to be able to comfort her through her rough patches but now she is kind of pushing me away. I guess I just don't really know how to handle it, should I try to talk to her? Should I just ignore her and if she starts asking me for things tell her "no" because of the way she has been treating me? Anybody been through this with their skids?
