i have a 12 year old daughter and 7 year old daughter. I'm frustrated because my 12 year old is very mean to my 7 year old. She says she doesn't like her sister and it hurts to hear my 7 year old say her sister hates her. My 12 year old is a good girl with a good heart but she can't get past this anger she has towards her sister. She doesn't hit her or anything thank God, but she is just always so angry and mean towards her. I know she's going through a lot of changes and hormones are crazy, but I can't stand it anymore. I feel like mybe it's something I've done? I don't play favorites in my home and she knows that. I sense a lot of jealousy coming from her but I don't know how to help the situation. The result is always us fighting and her saying she hates me. I've tried to talk to her privately and it seems sometimes she understands and wants to change but it never works out that way. I love my girls and I just want them to get along.
