Teenage attitude

Am I the only one dealing with a teenager who passively aggressively does chores?

Allow me to vent, lol.

Normally Mini is a GREAT kid, but asking her to do chores gets a sigh, stomping around and cold behavior from her.

I don't ask much, really I don't. Why do I have to deal with this over something as simple as cleaning up the kitchen?

SIGH. (stomping my own feet).

    Yuck.. sorry.. LOL.. I don't have teens yet, but my sister does and my nieces do this.. or one of them anyway.. and I see it in my friends kids..Sometimes..

    Let her throw her attitude.. find pleasure in her displeasure :)

    I don't know how I will be.. I'd like to THINK I'd be like, "Don't you throw that attitude at ME"... But probably not :)

    Hang in there.. I see how my sister handles, she sort of just shrugs and makes a sarcastic comment, "I'm so sorry that you have to leave your LIFE to do dishes while I clean the REST of the house.. "
      I do not have teens yet but I do have teen nieces that are like my children! I`m going through it with them!! My children are still babies. I can only imagine what they will be like considering the way my nieces take my nerves to another level! lol love them oh so dearly <3
        I don't have teens, so this is just speculation but I'm guessing it's just part of the age? I know when I was a teenager I just thought my parents were horrid. I never ever realized how much work they did and felt like them asking me to do something was just because they were too lazy to do it themselves. Having children has been eye opening for me and has made me realize just how much my parents have done for me. I'm hoping I'll remember that I didn't always know when my kids act like I'm horrible for making them help!
