Is anyone else suffering, we are at our witts end with our elest. Feel like we are constantly correcting, telling off and taking things away from her. Have tried numerous ways to deal with her and all we get is evil stares, attitude, stomping off, slamming doors, being downright mean to her younger sister and being spoken to like something nasty on her shoe!!! It is getting me really down 😐😢

I sussed this a few weeks ago so will share! Same thing dd being a stroppy madam etc. She is 9 and older dd is 10. Dd 10 has started watching a soap on a night and dd 9 wanted to start staying up also. After a bad week I sent dd 9 to bed early with the chat that I would love her to stay up but as her behaviour and attitude was so bad I really didn't want to be spending any extra time with her after coming in form work to her the way she was! I ob wasnt nasty but just explained that she wasn't good company in her present moods! A week of early nights has more or less transformed her!!

I'm of no help ! We're in the same boat, dd is now 10 and it's ramped uP!i think it's hormones although she has always been highly strung. She bursts into tears when I try and ask her what's wrong.. It's exhausting!

Mybeardeddragonjustdied2016 she goes to bed early as she has always needed lots of sleep unfortunately she is having problems getting to sleep, I think tiredness really doesn't help her mood. I have tried sitting down with her and letting know how her behaviour makes me feel, also have asked if anything is bothering her and she just says no huffiley. May try again x
