During puberty, it is common for girls to experience arguments and a combative relationship with their parents, due to a new wanting of independence and grown up-ness. Parents, be calm with your teens. Being open about the facts involved with puberty is healthy and smart. Educating your teenager about the changes that are happening in her body is helpful and will most likely help her not be so weirded out with her changing body. Most importantly- be PATIENT. Remember when you were a teenage girl going through these changes. Especially all of the mood swings your mother had to put up with. Everybody does it and everybody goes through it. Be helpful and patient with your teenager and eventually, your relationship with her will survive the rocky parts and she will successfully get through puberty.
