My ten year old has become such a pain! She acts like she forgets everything we ask her to do and is as lazy as possible doing it. She has also become a BIG whiner. She won't try to ride her bike because its "too scary". At the park today she wouldn't try the monkey bars because they were "too hard". I know part of it is sibling rivalry, like today when she asked why I wasn't watching her on the playground and telling her good job like I was her 3 year old brother - I tried to pay more attention but COME ON you are 10! I am not impressed by your walking up some stairs. She continues to try to get praise for 3 year old things when she is 10. We've discussed age appropriateness and all that and when I try to have real discussions with her she gets a blank stare or plays with her hands or some other way of saying "I don't care". I want to spend more individual time with her but she gets me so frustrated and tries to act so dumb I get so annoyed I don't WANT to spend time with her. Everytime I think of this I feel like the worst mom ever, but 3 years in I'm so tired of her saying how life was better before her brother, it was better for her because SHE was a really cool kid, and now she's more often an annoyance.
