Who is this mean 9 year old????
Thu, 04-17-2003 - 7:40pm
My daughter just turned 9 a little over a week ago, and she has all of a sudden turned into a BRAT!!! She has always been so sweet, helpful, kind, now she is being so rude, disrespectful, and down right tacky. I am going out of my mind. I don't know how to handle this. I have a 4yr old, and 2yr old daughter's, and a almost 4month old boy, and she can't stand any of them but the baby, 9yr old and 4yr old in knock out drag outs all of a sudden, and the cocky attitude, where did it come from. I am totally at a loss. She also had a note sent home from school stating that she was written up 4 times in the last week for not following school rules, and she is on lunch detention, and is off of high honor roll until the end of the month. There are no new people in her life, I have talked to her about anything that might be going on at school, and she assures me that everything is fine, and I am with her all the time when she isn't at school (I am a SAHM), so i know nothing new is going on here, I just don't know what to think, do...Help, please....

TIA
