My daughters personality has changed significantly over the past year age 12-13. She has gone from private school to public school for the first time in her life. She wasn't an extremely sheltered girl but has definitely seen, heard and had to experience things she hasn't had to deal with before. Such as, peer pressure, bad language, sexual activity, drugs and racial conflicts on campus. This has been a whole lot for a 12 year old to deal with. As a result she has become very angry and has tried very hard to distance herself from good friends as well as the family. She seems very angry. Aside from all the hormonal and physical changes that have taken place she has had all of the other pressures to deal with. I find her attitude and lack of respect to wear on me immensely and has really taken a toll on me. I cry a lot and at times just want to run away. She tells me all the time that she hates me and I'm making her miserable just because I'm trying to be a good parent and am not letting her have her way.
