First i would Iike to say hello and that i am new to circle of moms. I am 30 years old recently married and mother of three. my son is 2, my middle daughter is 7 and my oldest daughter is 13. I am recently finding that my 13 yr old is trying her hardest to push the lines of how she speaks and acts towards me. She tries to act grown up and the attitude and sarcastic remarks are getting out of hand. We have a very close relationship and she so far at this point is very open with me about all the things going on in her life. I guess I am afraid that if I am too hard on her that she will pull away and not let me into her world. Am i wrong for feelling this way and does anyone have any suggestions to help me transition into these up and coming teenage years. Has anyone gone or is going through this same stage with their teenage daughter?
