Sophie - posted on 11/10/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hello everyone , my name is Sophie, my 16 year old Ella , has been a joy up until recently, I am a single mum ( divorced when she was 5 , ) Dad is present , she sees him twice a week , we have the same ideas on parenting although he is more severe than I am , she hates our appartment , won.t invite friends round , I am living in France as an english speaking Mum , so I guess she has always felt I was a bit different, I work , but have always been pretty strict and very present , on homework school matters etc , she has had everything she needs , no we are not rich , but now she just spends all her time shut in her room , on the dreaded smart phone , we tonight she was so rude coming in from school , shouting and not backing down etc .... Accusing me at the same time of being too strict , and then not strict enough ? She has transformed her appearance of late , shaved a side of hair off, and secretly got a septum ( nose ring ) piercing which she got hell for , I feel its changed the game , my trust and her attitude , fear she ismarginalising herself at school trying to shock ! Any advice ? Thanks
