Discuss Debbie's answer to: How do you keep a teenager positive? My daughter ...

How do you keep a teenager positive? My daughter goes through periods where she is super positive and happy go lucky and then when she is negative and upset. Like if the computer freezes up on her ...

I agree with Coper. We are human beings filled with emotions that come and go.  Its not unusual to have ups and downs, we all have them... I would focus on letting her vent how she's feeling without poking around too much for 'reasons.' Sometimes we are just feeling overwhelmed and the slightest thing will blow a fuse. I think if shes venting in an appropriate way, and no one is getting hurt, its a healthy, normal human response. (And lets not forget the hormone variables in teens! ) Relax mom, she'll be fine!   Just be around when she needs to talk to someone!
