• My little girl is a spoiled brat?

    My 15 year old daughter has a perfectly good Nokia phone and she asked for the iPhone 5 for Christmas, she is also saying all her friends have the iPhone 7 or 8 plus.

    My 15 year old daughter has a perfectly good Nokia phone and she asked for the iPhone 5 for Christmas, she is also saying all her friends have the iPhone 7 or 8 plus. Honestly she thinks I'm made of money. She wants Instagram and Snapchat on her iPad but I've already told her, it's for studying only. She is friends with juvinile delinquins who go out without adults, use social media, wear makeup and listen to pop music. She really wants to do these things, but I think social media is unsuitable for under eighteens, pop music is offensive and inappropriate. Last week, for her birthday her friend got her a tube of lip gloss, my child kept saying "Mom it's just clear lip gloss! I'm not gonna die!" honestly, she is so rude and cheeky. She clains she is depressed and "has no life" but she needs to accept this or move out. She is very spoiled and ungrateful, what should I do about this?

  • What percentage of teenage relationships last?

    If a couple starts dating when they are teenagers, what are the chances of them staying together forever? Just to clarify, I'm talking about couples that start DATING as teens, not couples who get married in their teens.

I think I (the 13 yo girl) should get my own room because I'm the eldest and also need a break from sharing with a much younger child and my brother because he is the only boy. My Mum wants my 12/yo sister and 9/yo bro to have their own rooms and me and my 5/yo sis share. I don't find this fair. I want to know who's right before I start arguing. Thanks in advance :D

  • Is parenting a nineTEEN year old considered parenting a TEENager or adult?

    Best answer: If you're parenting someone who is nineTEEN years old, then by definition you're parenting a TEENager. A person isn't out of his TEENs until he is 20 years old.

  • Should I let my 12 year old daughter be friends with a boy??

    Best answer: I’m friends with plenty of girls. 3 of which were in my class with me and 2 of my guy friends since elementary school. We didn’t decide to just split up when me and my ex started dating and then we broke up, we didn’t stop hanging out. That’s silly

    Best answer: It amazes me how many parents give their kids everything they want and the kids treat their parents like sh!t. If my kid was not behaving with respect and doing the right thing she would not be rewarded with expensive gifts. If they smoked, drank alcohol, disrespected me, or did drugs the first thing I would do is cut off all pocket money. If they are mis-spending the money knowing it is on things you would not approve if then stop supplying the money and tell them they do not get anymore until they stop these stupid dangerous things. Just tell your daughter that you are not an ATM to dispense all the money she wants spent on herself. She has to understand that some money has to be saved for future expenses and of course you need some for your own needs.
    The fact is some teenage girls are super selfish and expect the world to supply their endless wants. These girls can be very difficult as they only want their bedroom, to be fed and clothed, and you to buy them expensive things because the other teenagers have them. Beside that they want you to butt out if their life. They believe they are more adult than they are and believe they should be able to do as adults do, but when it all crashes badly the first person they generally turn to is their parents.
    Do you expect her to do chores or is she a total moocher who believes you should do everything for her. She should not be getting pocket money for doing nothing as in life nothing is for free. She is not a little kid anymore and should be learning life's lessons that you have to pull your weight in society as life is not a free ride.
    Personally I believe you have created this monster and now are struggling to control it. I am assuming maybe there is no father in her life as you have not mentioned him and this can make it worse. Many women dump dad not realising the damage it can do to kids and single parents try and compensate this with expensive gifts which the child comes to selfishly expect, and as teenagers they can rebel against you. It will be hard for you to get your daughter back as likely she has already got used to this life of you supplying all her expensive wishes, and has now started to find less than desirable friends to hang out with. Likely they are also telling her to disrespect you and show her maturity as all stupid teenagers do in their immature way. Likely it will not end until she is an adult and has mentally mature and realises mom did really care about her and was only trying to be realistic and caring. Some girls run away believing they will be better off without their family as they believe their family is trying to keep them as a child. Sadly it can be a hard time for families when a daughter goes off the rails and all you can do is your best. I have seen girls call in family services claiming beatings or other abuse so they can be removed legally from their family and generally are put in with friends they want to live with in a lifestyle that mid teen children should not be living in and there is little their parents could do about it.
    All you can do is your best but buying your daughter's love with expensive presents will only bring disrespect.

  • Is it common for teenage boys to sleep and lounge in boxer briefs and not boxers or PJs?

    My son is in high school and my daughter is in middle school. They were having sleepovers with their friends at our family lake house.

    My son is in high school and my daughter is in middle school. They were having sleepovers with their friends at our family lake house. It's not that I have a problem with it but one of my son's 17 year old friend slept in boxer briefs and in the morning came to eat breakfast in them and hanged around the house with my son and his other friends. I could see his bulge and make out the outline of his penis, but I didn't want to be rude and tell him to put on shorts because one of my son's other friends was just wearing boxers and I think that's normal because they're less showy and kind of look like shorts and it's not like he was acting inappropriate either. I was thinking underwear is just underwear but for my daughter and her friends, boxer briefs do leave little to the imagination. Do teenage boys lounge in boxer briefs often?

    Best answer: For a non-American please tell me what 7th grade means in terms of age. I might assume around 12 years, am I wrong?

    Indeed some girls of 12 years do have sex, thus have lost their virginity. But it is less common at that age than some assume - possibly some of those girls are bragging! Possibly also a source of bragging by the boys who claim to have deflowered those girls. Certainly by the age of 16 quite a few girls will have lost their virginity in societies in which virginity is not highly prized. I put the emphasis on girls because it is easy to tell medically if they have lost their virginity, and possibly even got pregnant. It impossible to tell if boys have ever had sex.

    In my young day the theory (!) was that females ad males should remain virgins until they got married, age was not of so much importance.
