My 13 y/o will get so upset over anything. Last night, her friends weren't home when she tried calling them. She comes to me crying about it. She was upset and then started taking it out on her siblings. Demanding they do this or that for her. If she doesn't get her way she will try to hug on the dog or cat or the littlest child in the house. I'm at my wits end. She believes everything should be fair or her way. She even called me a Bi#$% last night. I'm the step-mom, but I don't want to send her away. I try to be as equal in things with all my kids, but when she pops off, it makes it hard. I wanted to see a movie today, but now I have to find someone to watch her so the rest of us can go. This isn't the first time. We have had blow outs on a frequent bases. I tried being calm, but my stress lvls can only handle so much. I tried explaining to her things, but once she s past a point there is no talking or explaining to this child. What am I doing wrong?
