Thank you for the replies. She is having a few friendship issues at the moment,but I don't think it is that. We will have wi fi while we are away so she will still be able to keep in touch with her friends. She normally really enjoys our time away. She has her own bunk with curtains, so I don't think it is a privacy issue. I think she may be feeling as though she is lacking in attention. We have just spent some time together on you tube.... Looking at Anime and hair dyes! She does seem better. . Dd3 is very demanding of attention and I do feel I don't always have enough time to share! Life with three children!
Is she worried about loosing touch with friends while away, has she got a mobile so she can text etc? Not advocating that but just wonderng if she would like to stay in touch with friends while away or would that interfer with the family together atmosphere of holiday.
Might it help if she has more control over what was planned for hols or might she help to plan them? My dd is 8 so I have no expereince yet of teenagers so these are just random ideas, please feel free to ignore!
It might be hormonal, they can make your emotions go haywire. Especially if she has no idea why she is feeling this way. I remember (going back a fair way mind - haha!!) feeling extremely tearful and also anxious about going out when I was about 15 or so, but had no reason to feel that way, so i think it must have been hormonal swings
But keep an eye if she's spending very long periods alone in her bedroom, just in case there's something else going on as well that she isn't able to articulate now. Has she been having any problems with friends, school or similar, or been miserable about anything else recently?
As a family we go away on holiday as much as we can( we have a motor home ) We are packing today to go off tomorrow. Dd1 who is 14 is in tears because she doesn't want to go, she says she doesn't know why. She is becoming more of a homebody at the moment and likes to spend a fair amount of time in her bedroom. Should I be worried? Or is it just her hormones?
