I have a 14 year old daughter that is constantly disrespectful to me & her father. At school she is an A/B honor roll student taking AP classes. Teachers love her. However, at home she is rude, yells a lot, says horrible hateful things to me, refuses to pick up one thing in her room or anything for that matter, is very demanding. She locks herself in her room every day & sleeps a lot. She takes anxiety medicine, but that doesn't seem to be doing much. She used to be so sweet & loving. I don't know what happened! Any advise would be appreciated.

i too have been through the same thing. It really does get you down and wonder what you have done to deserve this. But unfortunately for your daughter it is not a nice time in her life . As someone said it is hormones, peer pressure and mainly the confussion of growing up. At school teachers treat kids now as small adults but, at home you see your little girl still and that is not your fault after all she is your daughter. I would try to sit down with her and chat about things if she will and talk about things going on in her life ,but dont try to become her friend cos she wont like that. But please remember this , after all she says and shouts at you , it will be you she turns to becaause at the end of the day she loves you a great deal.

Sorry, I didn't have time to type more...that was harsh.

But, I do know where you're at, and I do wish you the best, because she's going to NOT be happy with your new look on life!

I would try to sit down with her, and explain that you've allowed behaviour that you now realize is not ok, and that you and she will work together to build a different relationship.

Good luck, and keep me posted

Well, I have to say that was a bit of an eye opener, Shawnn. I went to check out the website - www.lilsugar.com/Signs-Spoiled-Child. I can't deny that my daughter fits everything on that list. I look back on how we've raised her & I really didn't think we were spoiling her. I guess we're in denial. Now we just need to figure out how to tame the crazy child we've created. She's extremely smart & I want her to be a productive member of society. As it stands, I'm afraid she's going to have an unrealistic expectation going into the world on her own.
