Dd1 has been doing this for the last 48 hours. I want to string her up by her ankles.
I haven't(yet) I have, without shouting, told her that she need to stop flinging other peoples things around, or she will find her stuff being fired at the bin at high speed. She rolled her eyes at me and said I didnt need to keep going onshock
I will, fire her stuff in the bin should she fling any of our stuff about, but is this life for the next few years with a girl?
How else can I deal with it?

Sorry to say but that sounds quite familiar. My dd (just 12)has told me that she doesn't want to behave like this and feels like she can't control it. I think its raging hormones. I often feel like this when I have PMT so have some sympathy with how she is feeling. However I can control my behaviour when I am feeling like this and she needs to learn to too and she will with time and experience.

Stick to your guns re the throwing things around but try to keep very calm. Say very little, walk out of the room and close the door quietly and let her rant on her own.
Then go back and give her a cuddle and you know how she feels but that she has to learn how to control it.

Oh god She does then come in the room and ask something with a perfectly normal voice and I think ????? personality transplant.
God tis gonna be a long few years then...the thing is, she wouldnt do it in someone elses house, to anyone elses things...which makes it seem personal. You know?

Well,just be thankful it's personal, hun! It's when they start speaking like that to the deputy head that you're really deep in the shit. (keep having to remind myself of this this morning angry)
