I was wondering if there are other parents out there that are going through or have been through this same thing. My daughter is now 11 and starting to show the early signs of puberty. I am really not looking forward to periods and all that (I still remember how long potty training took and how not fun that was). She is overall very healthy and active (too active!!!). She is VERY stubborn and is going through a bit of a "NO!" phase again. I thought we just got out of the last one. She sends part of her time at her dad's house (we are divorced) and when she is over there her older 14 year old sister has to bath and look after her. She has been doing this since she was 10 and her sister was 6. Any tips that can be offered for us is appeciated.
