    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Mean girl shrilling
    bertomax posted:
    My 12 year old step daughter is incredibly cruel and disrespectful to me aand her mother. She'll shrill everytime she talks to us. It causes her mom to shrill back. When you try to talk to her she refuses to listen.
    I suggested some counseling but her mother objects.
    Am I doomed to a shrill fest here?

    I think a good psychologist is in order to sort out the problems and help with coping skills and understanding.

    If your wife objects, then I'd move out. is too short - - and this is HER daughter, if she doesn't want to seek help to give everyone a better quality of life, then you've got no power.

    Take care,
    bertomax responded:
    No you are not doomed to a shrill fest. You are more than welcome to walk out the door at anytime. I know you and your wife have had this discussion many times. She was not like this before you drug her and her mother through a 1500 mile move and then screwed them both over by cheating with a pyschopath who then stalked and threatened them. I'm just saying

    Wait... I'm confused. Aren't you the original poster? Is there something I'm missing?

    I'm confused as well!
