How do you deal with teenage girl angst? I got through one child's issues and now child number two is driving me insane! It's a whole 'nother brand of angst and the mother /daughter bond is taking a serious beating.
I've tried explaining to her that 'the golden orb in the sky is called the sun, not the Sophie, for a reason' , Nope, not working.
This little princess is in a bid for power. She will not win and there will be casualties, trust me. Her freedom, her cell phone, her right to pursue driving, non-essential electricity, her social calendar, my sanity, etc.
She doesn't think that's what her behavior is all about, but we all know the score. Apparently, my brain cells have given up the ghost and she knows all, sees all and is the boss of all.
Let me just say it now, boys are easier!! A blanket statement to be sure, but true!
Pray for me, wish me luck, send me tips, send me cash for a boarding school, far, far away; heck, even a spa day.......I'll take all the help I can get!!
