She's 12. She is insufferable at the moment.

She argues the toss about everything under the sun.

She's scared to go upstairs and has toddler like tantrums when we tell her to put the lights on and go up.

She moans when we ask her to do anything whatsoever.

All she wants to do is sit on her arse and stuff her face.

She's lazy, manipulative, bolshy and interrupts every single fucking sentence I utter.

Boarding school sounds lovely...anyone else?

Oh my nearly ten year old arguing black is bloody blue at moment.

She's driving me flipping nuts.

Complete attitude and answering back I AM considering leaving home.

I read your title and had to click on the thread to see if she's 12.....and yes she is.

I have one too.

Maybe they could get together and have a conversation that goes something like " no, but....yeah but...why do I have to....no but.....in a minute...I'll do it later....yeah, but...."

Ooh i know a 13 year old boy that she would have a lot in common with. <glares at DS1>

shazbean Sun 04-Nov-12 19:59:01

They're still like that at 12...?!

Mine is 5, with the attitude of a 15 year old since starting school. I was living in hope that it would get better.

<weeps softly into pillow>

Let me guess, nothing is ever her fault either. wink

ethelb Sun 04-Nov-12 20:02:41

Oh I was like that and was a relatively ok teen. Your reward will come later.

lljkk Sun 04-Nov-12 20:04:04

Of course not Sparkling, they can walk on water too, given half a chance. wink

Sparklingbrook Sun 04-Nov-12 20:08:08

DS says 'it's not my fault' (well screeches it) about 150 times a day. He left a half full glass of pop on the table and knocked it over. But it wasn't his fault.

It's not his fault his bedroom is a shit tip and he only remembered he had homework today the day before he goes back to school either. angry

is it worse with girls than boys? - My 13 yr old DS has a tidyish bedroom, some attitude but knows when to shut up when he gets the look but does push it with his father. DD who is 10 going on fecking forty's bedroom is a shit tip, all she has to do is walk into the room and everything 'falls out' of the cupboards. The crap is unbeliveable!!

Mines 11 and all I get is answering back disagreeing with anything i OR when I say this is a warning she pushes for the punishment I mean WTF with wanting punished or it she sulks, looks mumbles when walking away then she " is talking to herself" GAH roll on teenager stage it cant get much worse

baskingseals Sun 11-Nov-12 20:08:37

oh my god.

dd is also scared of going upstairs. it drives me potty. especially as she will go upstairs if it's something she wants to do. but not to brush her teeth or get a warmer jumper.

she thumped ds2 the other day. i said 'you can't hit' she said 'no mum, we shouldn't hit, get your grammar right'

today ds1 and 2 were going to a softplay party - she knows the family really well. me 'dd, would you like to come' dd, slumped on sofa 'no, i am not coming'. five minutes before leaving she then announces that she is coming and has a go at me for not telling her we were leaving.

my nerves are shattered. she is 10. she is honestly making me doubt my sanity.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 11-Nov-12 20:10:12

Great, can you ask her how to put my Samsung galaxy email notification onto silent cos even google can't. Thanks. grin

Sympathies, I have an insufferable 11yo dd.

Oh yes Flick the 'WELL I DIDN"T KNOW DID I???'. angry and my helpful response 'Well you should have known'. Then lots of eye rolling.......

baskingseals Sun 11-Nov-12 21:35:51

and the 'you NEVER listen to me'

oh god if only. but as you are about 10cm away from me i don't really have much of a choice do i?

aliasjoey Sun 11-Nov-12 21:53:54

another one here, 10 years old, I was hoping things would improve soon?

And they think we adults are stupid and out of touch... they do the eye-roll...

uggmum Sun 11-Nov-12 21:56:23

I so feel your pain. My dd is 13. Bossy and bad tempered. Oh, and everything is my 'fault'. Grrr!

poorbuthappy Sun 11-Nov-12 21:57:11

I have an 8 year like this. I thought I had a few more years before it got to this point. sad
I have lost count of the amount of times she has argued with me today. hmm

Curlygirly Mon 12-Nov-12 12:03:08

I feel your pain.
With ds1 who is 10, every request to him is answered with "What the heck/hell!"

foxy6 Mon 12-Nov-12 22:01:31

i love the title of this thread grin. my dd is 9 and starting with the moodinesses so i'm sure i have lots of fun headed my way lol

baskingseals Tue 13-Nov-12 10:13:38

with dd it's like i've stepped through some kind of portal and into a completely different universe run by a rather inflexible all powerful ALWAYS right emperor. i am reduced to mere minion status. i am certainly not human and do not have feelings, and if i presume to, they are over-ridden by the FAR more real and important feelings of said emperor.

it can be quite unnerving at times.
