It is normal for a child to turn irrational and condescending overnight despite reaching almost 15 without any classic signs?

Hi,
I hope things settle soon. Every child is different. Maybe she has relationship problems? Here is something you may find useful.

Not easy, I don't have a teenager yet, but I remember being a difficult one!

Absolutely. And I think you'll find it's all your fault. :roll:

Last night we got our 'tweens' to watch the Professor Winston Human Body from 2001, the one on teenagers. Absolutely fascinating. But no help whatsoever in coping with this angle!!

Thanks everyone. I just had to sound off somewhere! I might watch the episode on teenagers with her and her 11 year old sister. It's funny the change, which reminds me of the Harry Enfield teenage boy character's overnight transformation:) Luckily it's just moody and stroppy behaviour at times though.

It hit both mine when they reached 13 and it really was overnight. From nice cuddly children who would sit with us and hold conversations to rude and obnoxious teenagers. The 16 year old now seems to be turning back to normal. I asked him to clean his room the other day and he said yes and did it without complaint. I nearly collapsed. In the past I had to gear myself up for the onslaught. Whilst the youngest seems to be gearing himself up for full scale war where the slightest suggestion necessitates him moving his arms, rolling his eyes and grimacing :(

Sometimes when I moan about my teen I'm reminded that they are a phase in their lives where they really are different to other stages. Not only their hormones but school angst and friendship worries but also their hearing. I'm so glad my local corner shop didn't have one of these when I was younger!

So much of what teenagers do, they really can't help. Doesn't mean to say we have to tolerate too much of it though of course :lol:
