I am trying so hard to be a good mother and I feel like I am failing so miserably. My DD is ten and she is an exceptional child. She has a very high IQ but dyslexia which drives her insane. She is very intuitive, but also moody and given to a terrible temper (something sadly she inherited from me). She is perceptive to a fault and can be extremely critical which is something I do not handle well. I know what I SHOULD do as a parent. Most of the times I know what I am Supposed to say, but I am also human. And she can be as irritating as a mosquito in the night. She follows me around criticizing me. She tells me she is angry at me but that she won't tell me what for. Everything I do that she thinks is a mistake she points out. If I had wanted that in my life I would have stayed married to my first husband! I made a point of getting toxic people out of my life and now I gave birth to one??!?!?! When I tell her she cannot do anything that she knows pretty much she is not allowed to do anyway, she starts the fit. I know the teens are coming, but they can't be here already can they?? If that is what this is I am going to have to put her up on Ebay! I will not be able to do this for 8 more years!
