She turned 13 earlier this month and she seems....different. It's like my husband and I are back to her as in her younger childhood again. Ever since she was 10-ish, she is very polite but sometimes she can be 'rude' such as groaning and door slamming and complaining just to get me frustrated but now it has disappeared. She's the New Teen at our house now. I'm getting suspicious, what is it that is making her not moody? She acts normal just like her 6yo cousin but my almost 10-year-old has begun this 'rude' attitude now...is it possible that my oldest has gone through puberty and my second child is beginning it? She acts like a typical teenager without mood swings, loves her phone, chats, really into fashion/looks, etc. It usually stops around late 15-16 or a little earlier...I keep asking her, but she just raises an eyebrow at me and says "Why would I be angry?" "Do you want me to be mean?".
