How do you cope when a teenage daughter goes moody!? My heart goes out to her and I want to help but unfortunately end up needing help myself….. I’ve noticed that she breaks ‘all the rules’ when it comes to communication – interrupting, aggressive, blaming, put downs, fails to communicate her real problem/issue/feeling and ends up putting me offside, slams me with a load of verbal abuse and gets me off-side….. I feel like I’m in an abusive relationship! And would love some more tips about how to cope with this abuse… and then perhaps guide her a little more in how to manage her stuff/communicate etc.
