A concerned mum has confessed to disliking her 'rude' teenage daughter as she can "ruin any occasion with her behaviour" and "doesn't seem to care" about her family. The anonymous woman posted on Mumsnet's Am I Being Unreasonable forum to express her concern over her daughter's 'awful' personality.

"Me, my husband [sic] (her dad) and her youngest sister, who is 10, suffer as a result of her behaviour every day and it's getting to the point where we are all on countdown as to when she will leave home. She's 17 so if she goes to university it will be in the next year or so," the mum explained.

The forum user said she 17-year-old has "always been a much loved child," and that she and her husband have provided for her in terms of a secure home, as well as paying for clubs and even for her school trip to the US this year.

The mum continued: "I don't expect any praise or credit from my daughter for being a decent parent but I have told her I don't expect to be treated like s**t, which we all are."

In addition, she insults the mum's appearance, "asking why I don't dye my hair, why I wasn't wearing makeup, criticising my clothes and calling my husband [sic] a 'short man'."

The frustrated mum added: "She feels it is ok to say all these hurtful things despite having parents who love her and try to do the best for her.

"I just dislike her so much and am so concerned that this is who she is and will never change. Her personality is just awful. Friends tell me it's because she’s a teenager but does this mean all teenagers are cruel?"

The mum received mixed responses, with some people sympathising and saying it's normal teenage behaviour.

One person said: "I would say that is not normal behaviour from a 17 year old. How is her mental health? Has she struggled in a school setting, with other people etc?"

Another suggested: "There are not very nice people all over the world, they are born that way, they never change, it seems like she’s just rotten to the core. I unfortunately have a teenager the same."

However, others think she shouldn't be letting her daughter get away with this type of behaviour.

One person said: "What it tells me is that you are allowing this poor behaviour. You need to step up and pull her up on it, every single time."

Another commented: "She sounds like she's been spoilt to be honest. This is broadly the behaviour of someone who knows they can get away with the behaviour she is with little to no consequences."

A third added: "Im [sic] sure this wasn't your intention, but she sounds spoilt. That kind of behaviour is unacceptable."
