Thank you!

Does she feel like you have an interest in her and what she likes? I think at that age she is discovering herself and maybe wants validation which can lead to acting out I'd she isn't getting it.

That all being said, I have no idea what I'm talking about.
As far as spening time with her...yes and no. We do fun things together (pedi's) bike rides (but those include the brother) we are always doing something, always busy, she is in Girl Scouts and I go to the meeting with her and the trips and stuff. We play her games on the computer. When dad is home (he works A LOT) he usually has the brother outside and Jera and I will hang out. For her Bday present, I am taking her to her first concert...she doesnt know about it yet.
