Hi everyone. I love my daughter to pieces but here lately she has had this really nasty attitude with me and i don't know why. I just don't understand it. When i scold her she sucks her teeth, rolls her eyes and stomps off. I have punished her for it. nothing works. Has anyone else had this problem with their daughter. please give me some pointers, tips, any thing I just want my sweet little daughter back.

I would set her down the next time she sucks her teeth,or rolls her eye and stomps off and let her know that you will not tolerate those actions and then the very next time she will spend time in her room (with out tv,or any other toys)for at least 10 min. You're going to have to get tough with her to put a stop to this way of behaving or it will get worse. Kids want to respect you but at the same time yu have to get their rest and letting her get away with these actions you're say I don't deserve her respect. You also might want to check out her friends and see how they treat their parents.

Children ought to be corrected at the right age and sometimes, it is very unpleasant work to execute. All love and affection is wonderful, but then there is a need to put a limitation to it. Papmptering too much may lead to development of arrogancy and more demands from the children and in fact it is the parents (some of them) who spoil the children without proper control. Where they deserve to be appreciated it should be done, where they go wrong, they should be told strictly, if they do not heed to kind words.
