Re: Me and my daughter dont get along!

Oh, the age of nine......
My DD is 13. We still have a few moments but they're much fewer and much farther between. Stand your ground. Along with trying to figure out who she is, she's also trying to figure you out and how far she can push you. It's a tough road mama but you can do it.

Pick your battles, have patience, be consistant in your rules, and love her.

I make it a point at least once a day to tell DD that I'm proud of her for XYZ or genuinely thank her for something she's done, no matter how small.
Oh, and really hug her at least once daily.
