I don't like her

My daughter. She is a teenager and I'm so sick and tired of how selfish she is. All of the sacrifices made for her and she treats it all like someone owes her something. I wish I had a boy instead!

    That's not just girls.. boys can be entitled too.. and, well, teens can be real jerkfaces.

    It's your fault she's like that. She learned entitlement somewhere. So what you gonna do about it? You're still the parent here

    Yeah, you are right. I've heard that, too. From what I understand the connection between the moms with boys though is different. Girls can be too flighty and emotional. Is that true?

    She's a teenager. They're like that. I have five boys 26-16. Trust me, they're just like that.
    You're supposed to be the mature one here.

    Who gave them a sense of entitlement? I've got 3 girls 23,18,16. Never once have they acted entitled. Also I have 2 boys 17&12.

    I'm on a website with a group called mom confessions for support versus whining and picking an argument with her. Yes, I'd call myself doing the mature thing.

    Relationships between parents and kids isn't a general rule of thumb depending upon the child's sex.

    A relationship is what you both make of it. Sit down and talk (not argue or scream) with your daughter. Let her know what you are seeing, express your concern. Listen to what she has to say (even if you don't agree LISTEN). Make a plan to create a stronger relationship.

    I only have girls... I have friends with boys though that also have girls..they same it's the exact same. Only one of my girls is emotional and it's the 9 year old.. the 11 year old is the easiest, laid back kid ever. Teens are trying to figure out who they are regardless of gender. They are stuck in the "almost adult" but not quite there yet realm so they can be jerkfaces.

    You shouldn't want to pick a fight with her.
    When you're a teenager, every bad thing that happens is literally the worst thing they've ever been through. They have no experience so things that seem little to us are huge to them. Gain some patience and understanding.

    I get you are looking for support, honestly , most children don't wake up one day acting what you described. It is learned behavior over time. Luckily,There is time to change it . Stop sacrificing everything for her. Ignore her when she whines. Make her volunteer somewhere so she learns about giving and how much she has.
