My 12 year old seems to becoming very rude and snappy. She also has a anger issue, but she very smart in school and always getting the best grades. She started changing around 10.5. She stays in church but she respond back every time I respond. Now she apologize last night because she was rude to me at the movie theater. She been between my mom house and my home. She been back home the whole summer.

That makes sense. When I was 25 my mother remarried both were widows. I still had a breakdown at the reception and had to leave for a little while to collect myself. I can't imagine remarriage is any easier on a kid. I say give her lots of hugs and tell her you will always love her. You don't know what she has seen or heard at school or tv she might believe she'll be replaced if you 2 decide to have more kids.

No, but her school is right by my moms home that's all. See I don't use the belt on her at all. She told me that she has an anger problem. Now that I'm engage it's harder to balance between the two of them. I try very hard, like play board games, movie theater, and maybe look at a CD together on TV. She screams out often it her nephew comes over now. She loves to read books and tell me a story but she lash out at me more now. She's in a college prep school now and already stayed on U of M College Campus for 4 days and 3 nights. I just want advise on how to maybe understand the change in her behavior. How to explain without being hard on her about having major out burst for some small stuff. Help with advise. Shara
