It's nature. They have to branch out and become their own person.
Hey I'm not distant! I'm in my room with my door locked doing....ok maybe I am :-/
It's a stage called 'individuation' and we all go through it. Some go through it to a stronger degree, but it's quite common as they are finding themselves and trying to find their own unique individuality separate from the identity of their parents.
Cause their to busy with hormones and boys and friends.
I don't think all daughters do. I did, but my daughter didn't. I had a crap parent, my daughter had a devoted me. So that is my answer as a daughter and mother.
My best guess is that as a teen male or female, you are finding your identity and that can be stifled with mom or dad watching your every movement, so naturally you distance yourself to find your own way.
I became distant from my dad because I found him to be intrusive; because he was always looking for more information, I felt compelled to give him less, which led him to ask more questions . . . vicious cycle. At that point in my life, I considered myself an adult, and questions which were considered inappropriate to ask adult family members genuinely offended me. To add insult to injury, my dad had left us three years prior and my POV was one of "How DARE you ask me these questions? If you had stayed, you might not need to do so."
With my mom, I shut down a bit, but not nearly as much because she didn't pry all the time. She gave me the benefit of the doubt, and I respected her because she respected me. In the end, I think I turned out okay. And for the record, I have good relationships with both parents now.
The biological needs of a young woman is to have a good husband and family. Modern parents deny her biology and pretend she is still a child. Blocking her biological needs and behavior creates a huge conflict. She ends up having to hide and get laid in some unapproved way, and then lie about killing her babies. Its a real mess.
because girls are more independent...
I think its just part of growing up and testing the waters, I wouldn't take it personally though, its like a rite of passage.
My daughters,both became distant to my Wife,but not me. My wife was very Critical and judgemental of them,so they stopped asking her opinion. They have gotten better as they have gotten older.
Because NOBODY UNDERSTANDS ME !!!! WAaaaahhhhhhh=( xD....
True story its fits probably 90% of all teenage girls out there no matter the creed,colour or culture =)
Because they know their parents would be disgusted by them if they knew what they got up to
I think control of her parents.. girls have more control than boys..
because parents dont have enough patience
