My 14 year old daughter has a definite sense of entitlement which I am finally making the effort not to address. The other day in order to try out for a school play she asked if I could be out of the house (and my husband) after I picked her up from school at almost 5:00 so that she could pick a song and rehearse it. In the past I have done this. But in the last 3- 4 months her behavior has been difficult. Caving herself in her room for days at a time, no interaction won't eat, won't eat at the table because something just wasn't right, or I said no to something. This time I said no and she blew off into her room saying now she couldn't be in the show. All I said to her was you can practice in your room with your door closed, no one will hear you, you can even go into the car that's parked in the driveway. Why should I have to leave my house inorder to accommodate her? A day or two before she blew up at me because she is trying to be a vegan (eats no vegies) there is nothing for to eat,e xcept cereal, rice and pasta. She asked me to go out to get her a bagel. I said no. She asked me to go to the supermakret to get a box of a cereal - I replied we already have 3 opened cereals. She said, I can't just eat the same thing over and over again. HELP!
