I would have never thought i would be sitting here desperately seeking advice regarding my 15 year old daughter. I am so deeply in love with her and yet i can barely stand to be around her lately. Everything has changed in this last year. In junior high she was honor roll and played sports. She gets into high school and it all went to shit. I didnt even see it coming.
Out of nowhere she cant stand to be around me, the sound of her sisters voice sends her into a rage. At first i took it for her just being a teenager, but we are well beyond that point now. She is disrespectful not only to me but to others as well. When we do sit down and talk she has a excuse for everything, which pisses me off because she never takes responsibility for anything. It has gotten to the point where she has even ruined family outings. She doesnt take anything serious, not school, not her future, nothing. Everything is a argument with her, i am at the point where i get tired of hearing the sound of my own voice. I have taken away the phone, the computer, she cant go out with friends. I have explained to her that all of these things are earned. She still doesnt care. She is sneaky and i have caught her in lies numerous times.
I need advice. I love her, but i feel that i am ready to tell her eff it live your life the way you feel best kid, and good luck. I cant though, i dont want to give up on her.
