I have a 13 year old daughter that is wonderful when everything is going her way, and a total brat when they arent. She complains that she never gets anything and that everything that she has is junk. She picked out her school clothes and backpack, but now that she is in school and is seeing what other kids have, she wants what they have.

People that had more typical childhoods have told me that selfcenteredness is the essence of children and that its typical... When is typical not typical anymore??
