Ok so I'm REALLY new at this raising a teen thing....today and yesterday I introduced my niece to a girl down the road. I figured she needs to make some friends, and good trustworthy ones. They seem to get along fine but the problem is....my niece and I DON'T get along with other teens around. She starts showing off and acting like she can do whatever she wants. And if I disagree with her she gives me this HUGE attitude! Example: tonight her and her new friend come and ask me if I can take them to the school dance. Mind you, it's now 8:50pm and the dance is from 9pm-11pm...oh and besides that, she needs $20.00 for her and $20.00 for her friend to go. So I tell her it's too short notice especially where I have 4 of my own kids. I promise her that next time if I know a little more ahead of time she can go. Well, that starts a big fit by her blaming me saying I don't want her to have friends....that isn't the case at all and she knows it! How do I deal with this attitude and her rudeness when friends are around? I can't stand it! She's a different girl all around when friends are near........she got me to the point I wanted to make her stay in her room!!! I couldn't even look at her I was sooo annoyed...PLEASE HELP!!!
