    No doubt this nonsense is normal, but having no sisters and with my wife already being an adult when I met her, this behaviour still amazes me. And, to an extent, amuses, but only a bit.

    Stomps in from school and without even a hello tells me all about it…

    “I’m really cross cos I got the wrong day for making cupcakes it’s next week not tomorrow and my forehead hurts from when you squeezed my spot for me this morning and everybody has been commenting on it and my head aches and my thumb is sore and I have a splinter and I’m really tired can I just go upstairs now” going from angry to bawling tears in one (long) sentence.

    “So everyone at school commented on your spot?”

    “Well one person said I looked like an Indian and someone else stared at it”

    Six year old brother “It is quite big”…that’s when the drama really started!

    Just humour me and tell me they’re all like this πŸ™‚

    they’re all like this.

    My wife gets irritated by something our 11 year old daughter does/says e.g. “I can’t believe she won’t tell us what the problem is – she expects us to guess!”

    It all gets a bit frosty when I say “But that’s how you are?”.

    sounds quite rational compared to some of the ‘discussions’ I’ve had with mine

    Thanks!

    13 in January, I’m not expecting an improvement any time soon.

    Just teenagers? I think that just sounds like women.

    The next stage is when they both expect you to take their side ,best get an outside hobby or wear a tin hat.

    That is why I am so pleased to have boys, they have their issues too but it has to be better…

    I have recently knocked down my leaky old garage and a man is currently making a nice new one twice the size.

    If only this exciting garden development could offer some sort of solution.

    Not that I know about such things (and only have sons), but I can’t believe it’s about to get better if she’s almost teenage.

    it has to be better…

    From experience, I think it’s probably just different.

    And perhaps it’s easier for a Dad to find non-controversial common ground to talk to a teenage son about than a teenage daughter?

    my forehead hurts from when you squeezed my spot for me this morning

    😯

    I was prepared for the misery of teenage daughters (mine are 9 and 7 currently) – but please tell me that isn’t normal.

    [although i will admit to having performed 4 tooth extractions now, because they’re too fragile to pull their own wobbly teeth out]

    I read that we’re not programmed to get on with family members so we don’t interbreed.
    Does that help?

    i’m glad I have 2 boys, they’ll be so much easier…..right?

    Eleven year old here, just started “big school”!
    My god its been a long 8 weeks so far! How someone can be so disorganised is beyond me, and then on top blame others for it 😯

    She’s not brave enough to do it herself, but a spot with ahead is even worse than a plain red one, apparently. And I like squeezing spots.

    Three 12 year old girls here…and a nine year old! Even the dog is a girl!

    Erm…well I suppose I can see some logic to that, but as it’s not something I’d been considering anyway the information hasn’t really changed anything, so in that sense not a huge help. Thanks all the same!

    Sounds like mine, 14 in February. She’s currently got a really nice collection of spots on her forehead which I’m trying not to mention πŸ™‚

    And the bit about getting stuck in the middle of a fight between wife + daughter, that’s easy enough when the daughter’s wrong…

    16 & 13 year old girls in my house….

    Just wait, it will get worse… Sorry πŸ™‚

    You should think about why she’s behaving like this and be a bit more sensitive.

    Go upstairs and ask her if she’s ‘up on blocks’.

    15 & (almost) 18 in my house

    It’ll get worse for a very, very loooooong time. Thats why bikepacking is getting so popular.

    14 and 17 this week here and I have to confess that we have no stroppiness or particular moodiness at all. Both have a good sense of humour and we all get on fine.

    Obviously an aberration. πŸ˜€

    eldest pre teen daughter after failing to attract attention of mother by screaming at 200 decibels from the bathroom decided that emptying the bath on to the bathroom floor would serv as a punishment for mother.. not pretty made the opening scenes of saving private ryan look tame

    One of my brother’s two step daughters (if he and partner were married) is just 15 1/2 yo……and 2 months pregnant……

    My daughter was a bit over emotional and temperamental during her teenage years but not too bad really . . . Especially compared to me – I was a nightmare πŸ™‚

    13 year daughter here.

    For the most part she really is a great daughter and growing into a young lady but she has her moments.

    Far better than I was as a teenager…..

    Yeh 1 teenager in this hoose, nightmare!!! Crying one day and nothing but giggles the next.

    Its the excess Oestrogen building up in their bodies hence the reason it gets worse and then WORSE. You could try slipping some testosterone enhancers (DAA, ZMA, Tribulus) in her food, but then she might beat you up.

    All sounds a bit wasp factory 8-0

    my 16yr old daughter went in the army a month ago.
    she is home for the week, she is in the kitchen making macaroni cheese for her tea.
    she is like a different person, I even like her now…… πŸ˜€

    I have a 16 year old step daughter.

    Storm in a teacup springs to mind. She can be good as gold but the slightest off thing and it’s like I’ve arranged to have all of her friends and belongings destroyed in front of her.

    My Mum says my two brothers and I were far easier than my sister who came along 12 years later – bit of an accident…. Oh and she got pregnant without meaning to.
