I am raising my twin grand daughters and they are 9. I have one that throws fits screams really lashes out at me, when she gets caught lying or gets into trouble. Then when she is done throwing her fit she is saying sorry but does it again another day. I had boys is this normal for girls

Has she always been this way or is it recent? If it's recent it 'could' be hormones. If she's always been this way... well, my son freaks the heck out almost every time he doesn't get exactly what he wants. He's 8.5 years old and was diagnosed w/ anxiety and depression about 3 years ago. It's not an EXCUSE for his behavior, but I've been parenting him for 8.5 years now and I still don't have a clue how to do it. lol His twin sisters (almost 15 now) were never like him. I just take joy in the fact that in the home is the only place in the world that he acts like a maniac. Everyone else that deals w/ him adores him.

That probably wasn't exactly helpful, but you aren't alone. ♥
