My partner’s sister is 14 and… dare I say it… really annoying.
when I met my partner she was seven but over the last few years she has become a typical teenager. I’m trying to word this in a way that doesnt sound petty because I know being irritated by a little girl isn’t nice and I am trying my hardest to just ignore her behaviour and see the best in her, but its hard!
she is very ignorant of other people’s differences and I’ve often caught her making racist comments or being nasty about others (publicly, on twitter etc) while moaning incessantly about how no one likes her because she’s different. She is rude and often says cutting comments to others in the family, either oblivious to the fact that she is being blatantly hurtful or (worse) saying it to get a reaction.
she is incredibly spoilt and is treated like a child. she recently decided she didnt like going to school anymore and her mum let her be off for about six months. she has now gone back to school but its purely on her terms, and she refuses to go to lessons she doesn’t want to do such as sport. additionally, her mum gets up an hour early in the mornings to do her hair and makeup because – at 14 – shes incapable of getting herself ready.
she’s materialistic, and can’t stand the attention not being on her. As part of a group conversation, for example around the dinner table, she will CONSTANTLY talk over others and can’t stand to listen to someone else talking.
recently, at her own mum’s wedding (my MIL) she threw a tantrum in the morning after her mum asked her to bring her makeup bag into the bedroom, and said she wasn’t going to go even when her mum started crying. Then, at the hair salon, she started crying and screaming that her hair didn’t look good enough, again causing her mum to cry.
my partner knows what she is like and often expresses annoyance at her behaviour. Her mum doesn’t acknowledge her behaviour but at times will snap and I can tell she knows deep down what she’s like.
im sorry – I’m worried this makes me sound evil but I need to VENT! I also can’t stand the idea that at my future wedding she’ll act like she did at her mum’s!
Des anyone else have experience with teenage girls… Do they grow out of it??
