Help me be a better parent to my impossible 11 yr old pre-teen!

I'm a calm and caring parent but she really pushes my buttons.

She can be pretty needy, self centered.

Has no problem disrupting my privacy, or, expecting something from me 'immediately' while I'm extremely stresssed and busy.

She's always 'demanding more'.

Has no problem nagging me until I burst at the seams.

Cries easily and doesn't respond to anything I say with reason.

Often has an extremely negative attitude, it's just difficult to satisfy her with a good time.

Lacks confidence even though I try so hard to build her up.

Always has real friends and treats them well.


Please help a frustrated mother with your best parenting book suggestions!

I'll be following this, looking for advice too. Sounds exactly like one of my daughters, just a couple years older than yours. I'm still struggling terribly.

I would say try therapy for the two of you and ask the professional what they have to recommend?

The explosive child book has helped me tons. You can get a lot of the same information from the book for free www.livesinthebalance.org under the parent section.
