My eldest is 12 and in Y8 (Y7 there). She has developed a real attitude over the past year or so, and is SO negative about almost everything. Her teachers are all idiots (well not all of them, there is the odd cool one), every other adult she knows is embarrassing, her TA "stalks her", most TV is rubbish, her sister and her friends are all freaks, her class is full of nerds, geeks, weirdos. When an adult says something boring (or even not boring), of no relevance to her etc she rolls her eyes........very obviously! Of course she is always right, and we are always wrong....... I am sure you get the picture. I am fairly sure this is normal teen mode, but it is very wearing, lol. She had an appointment with her paediatrician the other day, which was full of eye rolling, muttering, and accusations of her TA stallking her :0 Thankfully the paediatrician seemed to think this was pretty much the norm for young people of her age! Occasionally it would be nice to hear her say something nice about someone. I would imagine some of the things she does, are probably a little exaggerated by the fact she has Asperger syndrome, but I just want to be reassured that all other parents of teenagers or near teenagers are in the same boat.
