Looking for some reassurance and solidarity really. I am a mum of four lovely kids. Three DS and 1 DD. The DD is currently driving me mad! She is the youngest and has always been strong willed. She is articulate and bright, model student but a firebrand at home. Within the past few my husband has started working away in the week. Currently my daughter is proving very hard work. Answering back, fits of temper, tears over nothing, it's like having the terrible twos all over again!!
She is heading towards her tenth Birthday and I think her shape is changing so wondering if this hormones. Or is it related to her dad being away more ? Or is it both?
Probably no one can answer this but it would just be good to know I am not alone.
To be honest at the moment I am feeling exhausted. I never quite know how she is going to react from one minute to the next and it's like treading on egg shells!

Could be. I started my period at 9 and my shape started changing around 7.

I think it could be both. My DH has always worked long hours, then started his own business so was home more. A couple of months ago he was working more than ever and DD was hateful. Turned out she was missing her Dad.

Have you found the MN preteens section yet? smile

Pre teens looks very helpful!! Thank you smileI might repost this there. She is quite used to Dad working long hours and being away but being away all the time is a leap. Thanks for the help
