Hey guys! Let's just have a fun and relaxing evening together at the movie.
Come on Kylie, we have to leave in five minutes!
I am almost ready! Just leave me alone!
OMG, hanging out with my family is so annoying.
It was very refreshing to me to read the articles required for class in regards to adolescents. I have a twelve year old daughter and it explained a lot about her current behaviors. I am so happy that I am not the only one going through it, because it is exhausting. She doesn't ever want to hang out with her family and acts like it is a bother when you even talk to her. I have spoken with other moms of girls her age and they agree that their daughters act the same.
I feel like it is a battle at home with her; however, she enjoys being in school with her friends and participating in the after school programs.
I feel like most of the time it works best to find an activity that we both enjoy doing and focus on the positives, in our case it is playing basketball.
