I've got a daughter and I just want to say I relate to some of you...my daughter has allot of attitude, she still sleeps with me and she's quite messy. The attitude part I mostly know how to bring her back to reality and the sleeping with me part doesn't really affect my day, but how do you get them to clean up there toys...when I look for my child I just follow the 'trail of destruction', the only thing she puts away ia her dirty clothes and her plate after meals.

I just came to this community and can relate terriibly and is it something with children born in Dec 2002 because my daughter is horribly messy. I thought it was a boy thing and always said my boy is my girl and my girl is my boy lol Getting her to clean up she always says she is playing or whines and it drives me naughts and we fight and she always thinks if she picks up one toy she cleaned.

I actually feel relieved to have read your comment my daughter turned 11 on the 17th December & she's doing my head I. With the answering back, laziness, untidy room & lack of self care/presentation.

She's a lil nightmare on some days & others she's absolutely awesome! Is it hormones? Is it boundary testing? I have no idea but just reading your comment has given me reassurance that she's doing what I assume all children do at some stage!

I just hope this phase hurries & passes
