Moody 15 year old daughter
03/27/2012 at 21:51 PM

I have two teenagers that are 11 months apart. My son is 14 and my daughter is 15. Both naturally have completely different personalities. My son can be mouthy and short tempered but when he does something wrong, he admits it. He's pretty straight forward with the things he does.

My daughter however, is a whole other ball of wax. She tells me only what she thinks I want to hear and her moodiness is really starting to spill onto me. Although I'm strong of character and I had a horrible childhood, I triumphed over all that and I love being a mom. I'm very sensitive of nature and I'm trying to find a way of separating my emotions towards my daughter's mood swings, from the issues themselves so I won't take them so personally. Two weeks ago she had moved to Ontario from BC, to live with her father who I divorced. She was DESPERATE to get out of this town she said. Yet being there two weeks, she wanted to come back home. My ex husband has a fiance and there's 4 children there, only one my ex husband has with her. My daughter suddenly wanted to come back home and she did. Although I told her it's not a revolving door and I don't want her to play her father and me against each other. Well she came back and she's so moody, curt and borderline rude. I try to talk with her but she's so guarded. I'm not sure how to proceed with this issue. I'm getting very concerned.
