When my children seem to giving me an attitude problem then i usually send them to their rooms. And they know not to come out until the attitude is gone. Sometimes they spend about an hour or so in their rooms before they ever come out. And other times they endup falling asleep. And when they wake up from their so called naps, then they act much better.

I try to remember that something is causing it. Usually with my SS15 or SD12, it's something that happened at their mom's house. I try not to push their buttons, and suggest that they cool off on their own for a while. Then when they're cooled off a little, try to talk to them about what might be bugging them. They both see psychologists too. Sometimes, it's just hormones or stupid teenage stuff. I just try to not fuel their fire and let them deal on their own.

I told my son to 'lose the tude, dude'. He knew that it meant he had stepped over the line. But sometimes look at it from their perspective, my son was about 10 and the hormones were beginning to kick in. One minute he was smiling and happy, and the next minute he was miserable. I said "You know I really don't like the way your are acting," all of a sudden he started crying and said "I don't either". I realized the hormones had taken over my son.

If my kids seem to have an attitude i usually send them to their bedrooms. i tell them not to come out until the attitude is gone. it seems to work, it has so far.

do you mean how do I deal with their negative attitudes? if thats what you mean I put them in their place....doesnt need to be done often mind you but they do have their moments when they get a little too lippy for my liking...when that happens I tell them in my calm slow "I mean biz" voice "DONT talk to me that way" etc and they get the hint..If the negative attitude is in the form of them talking down about themselves then I sit and talk with them about it (belittling yourself isnt something I care for) and correct them on it...
