Aarrgghh! We're all feeling it then.

My eldest has been nice lately. I'm sure she will be back at it soon. I have chosen to ignore her and she is coming to me more!

Since it's summer time she's been really off schedule w her sleep. She gets really moody, yelling at me etc..I found that yelling at her doesnt make it better so i talk lower than her and she listens more. School will be starting soon so we are setting the rules now to get her bk into a routine.

I have 4 daughters and the oldest 2 are 16 and 18. I swing pretty hard emotionally with my cycle. So I've always treated them the way I want to be treated. With respect. Validation of feelings even if I know it's hormonal. Together we work on possibilities on solving the problems. Sometimes we agree that it's best to table an issue for a few day when it could be better dealt with. These mood swings could be something that they will have to deal with their whole lives. So I might as well instill some strategies to effectively deal with it now.

Hi, I have a 13 year old who has been moody for ages! lol First you have to have a sense of humor and not take the attitudes personally. She's not mad at you really, she's just mad and you or other family members are the closest people she can let it out on. Set limits but don't let it set you off. I minimize or ignore whenever possible.



Best Wishes ~ Barbara

My daughter is 13 and has mood swings too. I try and sit down with her everyday to go over the issues she faces at school and let her know that she can open up about her feelings anytime she needs to be. The Mood swings are less and she knows that she's able to sit down and talk her issues out wen she needs to.

Oh my god! I finally found people to talk to about my emotional 10 yr old. She sees her dad 1 weekend every 3 weeks and we (my fiance and I) have her the other times. She is in full mood swing territory and I'm finding new gray hairs daily!! HELP!!

I think a lot of it depends on the behavior that the mood swings brings on. I recognize that most is normal, "growing up" , but it is not an excuse to be disrespectful.

Ah yes the wonderful mood swings bought on by other family members lol. My daughter was always a turd when she came back from her dads, he let her do whatever she wanted. The threat of not being allowed to go there worked sometimes lol.

My daughter also has to deal with her father when she sees him two weekends a month. He's not the most fun dad lol. He's alittle bossy but mostly not too pleasant to be around. When I get her back Sunday night it takes her a day or so to shake him out of her mind.

I have a 15 and 16 year old girls, so a bit older then 12, but i handle them by talking to them about it, although most the time i get "nothing wrong" lol. Or i just ignore it lol they seem to like that bestway
