My daughter just had her first puberty step, and she's really moody. I've tried EVERYTHING. I've tried pamprin, Tylenol, and everything else I could think of. Please give suggestions and anything else. Thanks in advance.

Moody is normal.... I'm not sure that ever goes away. Puberty is a long, difficult process. Hormones are crazy little buggers. The only time my preteens get medicated is if they have cramps w/ their periods. Other than that... we just go w/ the insanity.

You need a LOT of patience and understanding, but also to remain firm and consistent w/ the boundaries that you are comfortable with... and pick your battles wisely or EVERYTHING will be a battle... and that sucks for everyone involved.
