My teenage daughter 14 years causing concern

My daughter was my delight and support. Ever since she has hit 14 she is a changed person. Arrogant, obnoxious, rude and overbearing. When i breakdown or am angry wth her then she quietens down, apologizes. After a day or two, its back to square one. I love her so much and its paining me to think that she is turning in to what I never raised her to be.

I don't have much advise to you as she is 14 yrs old and even though her behavior is not acceptable it is normal teenage behavior. One thing that does concern me is that you state that she was a support......your daughter should not be a support no matter what age. She is not an equal and should not deal with adult issues or even issues as an equal. As a parent you should be a support for her, but it should not be the other way around. Make sure you are being a parent and not a friend. She will have many friends in her life, but only one mother. As for how to get through these years.....pick your battles, know that it does get better after they get through those teen years, and do the best you can.
