i almost don't know my kid anymore..
she was a cute, wonderful, loving smiling girl...
now, she is moody, lots of attitude.. knows all.....and lives in her room.....
SOMEONE STOLE MY KID!!
I have heard people tell me teens are there own animal... but i guess they would not get my dd... they did.
I come home from work - and she is in her room.. (she works during the day part time from 8-1 at a local camp) sometimes (occasionally) she wants to take her dinner up to her room too, she does have summer schoolwork -projects and reading to do and SAT prep on her laptop that she does have to do.. and of course there is facebook and instant messageing as well..
my husband says to leave her up there, as she is basically a good kid... i am not sure about the living in the room part..
She does interact with us, as she passes us to pick up snacks.. or a drink, and she does bascially keep her room clean or will clean it when asked..
I remember growing up - always being out of the house unless being punished.. so i do not understand the room time.
As she is also an only child.. there are no others for her to watch or interact with - except for US - "the parents" as she now calls us...
How LONG is this PHASE???
Any advice on how to get my kids back would be great.
P.s. she does leave her room for social occasion with friends.. She is not a recluse or have social problems. FYI
