Let me start off by saying... I Love You...

 

I worked with 10 - 15 year olds for a living during the summer and school year. And i have to say, over the two year's i've been doing it I learned alot... Most importantly I learned it's not an easy job... As a matter of fact it's hard as hell at times.

 

Anyway I'm glad there are parents out there like you who care about their kids. So Good for you!!! B)

 

Anywho sounds like you should be winning the Mother Of The Year award to me... :D:D

 

Keep being an awesome Mother, Person and Writer!!! :2thumbs:

I feel your pain (anger).

 

And for what it's worth...just once, embarrass the crap out of her and be the bitchiest mom you can think of. It probably won

:wacko: . Wow, I've always heard that raising a teen was tough, but wow (and she's technically not even a teen yet).

 

I'm certainly not in a position to give advice, but long the lines of what Sharon said, maybe next time you should trying yelling something that will embarass her. That way, she'll be rushing over just to keep you quiet.

 

"Come on, it's time to go shopping for grandma's adult diapers"

"Let's go, you have to help mom go buy bras"

"We need to go to the store to buy preparation H, or are you not itchy down there anymore"

 

okay, I'm not coming up with anything really embarassing, but you get the gist. :D Whatever you think will push her buttons (since she's obviously trying to push yours).

 

My sympathies :worship:

 

Take Care,

 

Vic

 

P.S. - why weren't you blessed with some confused gay/questioning kid who just needs the unconditional support of a loving mom?

It probably won’t have any effect on your daughter’s attitude, but it will scare the hell out of her friends. That way they know you won't stand for disrespect. Then the next time you call for your daughter, she might ignore you but her friends will suggest she do as you said so you don’t go all postal again. :D There is always a method to my madness.

I agree. Be a complete bitch one time in front of her friends and you'll be forever known as the mom not to mess with. It's also kinda cool to have the ultra strict parents that never let you do anything so when you finally do get to do something, you get to act all cool saying you convinced your hard ass mom to let you go out.

She has one of those... he's just not old enough to realize it yet :P

You know, I have a friend, who's gay son is now 19 years old. She said she knew that he was gay when he was 4 years old. :blink:

 

She's one of those accepting mom types, and was so excited and looking forward to when he finally came out at 16.

Well let's see...

 

At six years old he has been kissed on the mouth by another boy, has 5 pictures of boys hanging by his bed, and wants a rainbow birthday... Stereotypes? Maybe... copying his big sister the poster queen? Likely... Wants a pot of gold for his birthday and figured that was the best way to get it? Who knows...

 

Do I care? Not at all... he is who he is, and I'll love him, even if it turns out he's straight :P

Sounds like a little heartbreaker in the making :D:D

But you know what? Good for him, and good for you too Viv

still say wait for her to be all gathered with her friends on the front lawn, then lean out the door and yell at her for not picking up her my little ponies...

 

She will be so mortified in that instant...

 

Ahhh I'll definately want a picture of that face :lol:

Embarrassment is probably the best way to go.

 

Maybe something along the lines of blackmail embarrassment, like threaten to show some baby photo to her friends, who will likely enjoy seeing them and indulge into the embarrassment even more.

 

Or you could do what my mother did one day while I was trying to impress someone... She picked up the phone and asked me something that was totally embarrassing and then hung up in a deliberate attempt to pick a fight with me. Yes my mother isn't happy unless she's fighting with someone, though I don't recommend you pick a fight with your daughter after all, she's entering the wonderful teen stage and you apparently seem to be in for a wild ride.

 

Good luck.
