Luckily at 10 we still have a very close relationship and I hope I have laid a foundation for that to continue. Tamara — Thank you for your comment. It sounds like you and your daughter are on your way to a lifelong close relationship.
Jessie — Going to buy this book from Amazon right now! Thank you! Now, I will need to do some research on which books to get to help my neary 7-y-o son who is struggling with some frennemies at school! We went through a similar phase when my daughter was about that age, and truthfully, we still have our moments.

It can be difficult to be consistent, but thankfully, all of these are fun! Get a real life.

Having a tween daughter is harder than I imagined. I learned from our parenting counselor that the worse kids behave, the more love they need…but you need to give them time to cool down before you can give them that love.
Have you tried counseling? I loved our parenting counselor because it was just for my husband and me — no kids involved — and was all about how we could parent better and move forward, not just about rehashing the past and complaining. I hope you can find some help to give your family some peace.
