My DD8 (nearly 9) has become a moody, foot stomping, million question asking, cheeky, back-chatting, unhelpful little so-and-so. This is new. She was always the loveliest, kindest, most thoughtful and respectful little girl who loved helping around the house. What has happened?! Is this normal at this age? Has my sweet little girl gone for good or will she come back to me? Any advice would be amazing, she’s driving me nuts. Things are good at school, she’s quite popular and has a lovely group of friends. Nothing has changed at home.
YANBU- this is normal at this age and things will improve.
YABU- If you think this is bad, just wait until she’s a teen, it will be much worse.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

Thank you all. I did think it might be the start of early puberty. My boys weren’t like this at all. @Wolfiefan that’s great advice, thank you. Other than a stern talking to once in a blue moon I don’t think I’ve ever had to punish her. Literally never. We’re in unchartered waters with her right now.
