How do you deal with a daughter that is really a wonderful girl, EXCEPT she always has to have a comeback for EVERYTHING that her little brother says? She can never say anything nice, it's not nasty words or cussing just not nice. Any clues?

i think alot of kids do this but it can certainley drive a parent crazy.try to either separate them let them find diffrent intrest to stay busy or try to find a comon intrest that will keep them busy and draw them togeather.i dont know if there is a good answer parenting is really hard.

I think you should sit down and talk to her seriously in order to teach her about the importance of talking nicely to her brother and to anyone else. Cursing is not for a good girl and if she wants to be a good girl then she should change and start to behave well. Youngsters are so easy to train just be patient with her. No need to spank or scold very so often as this will only harden her heart all the more. Try to deal with her in the most gentle but convincing way. It is also good to tell her that Jesus do not like children to be nasty.

Well, have a talk with her then as I told my girlfriend. Her son got it from her and her husband. They alway's have something to say and it is not nice most of the time they say hey I was only kidding but no. So you also have to look around you and see who is talking bad alot. Have a nice night and goodluck with that. If talking don't work try a time out if that don't work there is alway's soap or in my Mom's case she slaped my sister in her mouth once not hard but it did the trick. Your friend onlydia

just tell her that its not good to fight with his broyter at all times. tell her that she must be forgiving and understanding because she is the elder one. her brother might hate her and if the fighting continues, he might hate her and get back at her one day
