Our daughter is 14 and wants to spend all her time at her friends house, and seems miserable at home (and rude). I feel hurt that she doesn't want to spend time with us.
I suggested her friend come over to our house but she doesn't want that. Should i be concerned or is this just normal teenage behaviour?

Not that this helps, but there was a while where one of my daughters didn't seem to ever want to be home. After a bit of probing, it turned out to be because we didn't have a swimming pool!

How did you go having that chat with your daughter @MeJane?

I think what @Sbaussie said is so true.
When I was a child I always had friends at my house and they never invited me to theirs. I took it personally but found out years later they were just embarresed about silly things like the food their parents made or their neighborhood or anything and everything!

@StHubbins So did you get a swimming pool? I'd be interested to know how you dealt with that, and even how you began the probing that made that discovery! It sounds challenging.
